Mission Stories

Ash Wednesday

Inspired by Pope Francis’ encyclical letter, “Laudato Si,” we will observe the Lenten season with a focus on the care of the Earth, our common home, through reflection, repentance, renewal, training, and actions.  We must come to terms with the global crisis and the threat of a planet that is becoming increasingly difficult for humans and other creatures to live in.  This crisis moment can spark a large spiritual transformation in terms of reforming our environmental realities into a more peaceful, just, sustainable and thriving world.  When we are more aware of and attend to the needs of our common home and all who dwells therein, we can be sure that we are in-touch with the Holy, our Creator, and close to the realization of the unfolding of a new creation.
