Bishop Michael Duignan will preside at a special Season of Creation prayer service in Galway Cathedral at 7:30pm on Thursday 8 September.
The service will include a talk by Nóirin Lynch, Director of the Faithful Companions of Jesus Spirituality House in Spanish Point. She says: “The Season of Creation’s symbol of the burning bush reminds us that we share this earth with all living things. We are responsible for the care of the planet and our actions are going to have a direct impact on the poor and on the next generations. Our spirituality must recognise the hand of God in all creation.”
The service will include participation by pupils from local schools and parishes, and will be followed by bulb distribution and a tea/coffee reception to facilitate networking between parishes. The event is being supported by the diocesan Laudato Si’ Care for Creation working group.
We look forward to welcoming you to this event in the Cathedral on 8 September. This event is also available live on the Cathedral webcam.
