Season of Creation
The Season of Creation is observed in many Christian churches from September 1 to October 4 each year. Since 1989, September 1 has been a Day of Prayer for Creation. October 4 is the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, who is for many a patron saint of environmental concern and activism. More information on the Season of Creation and prayer resources are available at seasonofcreation.org.  This link is to a prayer card:

2021-2022 Ignatius Brady Lecture Series

Luke Togni
LECTURE NO. 2 IN THE 5-LECTURE SERIES:

Mirrors of the Eternal Art:
How God's Word Speaks in the Bible & Birds
Sept. 15, 2021
7 p.m. ET
resented by Luke Togni, Ph.D.

Dr. Luke Togni studies and writes on St. Bonaventure, Pseudo-Dionysius, their sources, reception, and intersection. He has taught theology and classics at Marquette University and the University of St. Francis (Fort Wayne, Indiana). He lives in Nova Scotia, Canada, with his wife and four sons. 

* 'MIRRORS OF THE ETERNAL ART' DESCRIPTION
      Bonaventure teaches that the Word, the Son of God, is the model for both the whole creation and of scripture. This lecture will explain how creatures, such as plants and animals, and scripture speak about God, and especially the Incarnation, in a complementary way in the life of St. Francis of Assisi.
         
* ABOUT FR. IGNATIUS BRADY, O.F.M.
      Fr. Ignatius Brady, O.F.M., was one of the world’s leading authorities on the thought and spirituality of the great medieval Franciscan writers, including Saint Bonaventure.

Join “Canada Is on Fire” day of action
Dear supporters,

This summer, the climate emergency touched down in Canada like never before. Record-breaking wildfires and heat domes. Floods and tornadoes. There’s no question: we are in a climate crisis.

Last month’s UN IPCC report issued a “code red for humanity.” This is not new information, but with an election on the horizon, it’s time to come together, speak up and demand urgent action.
Our friends at 350.org have organized a day of action this Wednesday (September 8) and are calling on you to join.

Canada Is on Fire is a non-partisan campaign encouraging people to host events, organize marches, post images online — anything that shows your support for bold climate action. However you choose to participate, we encourage you to follow your local health authority guidelines on in-person gatherings, wear a mask and stay COVID-safe! Their in-depth toolkit provides details on organizing, signs, messaging and links to government COVID-19 guidelines.

Solving the climate crisis isn’t just a matter of health; it’s a matter of social and environmental justice. We know the most vulnerable are disproportionately affected by climate change. And, as the pandemic has taught us, a rapid and effective emergency response is possible when we work together.

Election day is just two weeks away. Join us on September 8 and tell your candidates the climate emergency is now, and a green and just pandemic recovery is the only way forward.

Thank you for your commitment to a better world. See you next week!

Sincerely,
Megan Hooft
