Faber celebrates Season of Creation 2019 with a retreat day reflecting on our interconnectedness with all creation...

2019 08 26 13 28 01

 

In the spirit of Laudato Si and in celebration of the Season of Creation (1 Sept - 6 Oct 2019), the Faber Centre is offering two events:  Finding God in the Compost, a day long retreat on Saturday 7 September, 10am to 3pm, and for those short of time, Two Hours of Quiet on Saturday 28 September, 9am to 11am, incorporating a reflective walk through Coot-tha bushland.

 

About the Season of Creation

We celebrate the season of Advent before Christmas. We celebrate the season of Lent before Easter. When do we celebrate the season of Creation? And where did this season begin?

This new season of the church year is celebrated during the four Sundays of September that precede St Francis of Assisi Day (September 1 to October 6).

Around the world, churches are becoming acutely aware of the environmental crisis. Our precious planet is at risk. In response, many congregations in the Western world have celebrated Earth Day, World Environment Day or St Francis of Assisi Day.

Also available are spiritual formation programs, seminars, workshops, and outreach programs to parish staff and school staff, and to regional and rural areas throughout Queensland.
