Season of Creation 2021 is from 1st Sept. to 4th Oct. (Feast of St. Francis of Assisi) The theme this year is ‘Restoring our common home’. The UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow (COP26) in November will be one of the most decisive gatherings in modern history.  190 world leaders will gather. Is there still hope of protecting the worst extremes of climate change, such as floods, fires, and famine? The answer is that there is still time, but what is needed to be done is very difficult and very expensive. Two reports this week have established that climate change is the result of human behaviour, behaviour that needs to change. In preparation for the UN COP 26 meeting there will be a petition known as the Healthy Planet, Healthy People Petition available at for dioceses, parishes, and individuals to sign. It is envisaged that this petition with signatures will be presented by Pope Francis to the Presidents of these upcoming UN conferences.

A prayer as our schools re-open

God of Love, we ask you to extend your hand of blessing on our pupils as they joyfully reunite with their friends and all in the school community.

Bless our parents as they again entrust their children to our schools, confident that all can work together to help them become the very best that they

can be.

Bless our boards of management and staff as they continue the good work that they have already begun to ensure a welcoming and safe environment for all.
