Update: RSHM Activity during the Season of Creation

Posted October 6, 2020

During the five weeks of the Season of Creation, 2020, RSHM from around the Institute were engaged in reflection on Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si’. We focused on the effects of climate change on our earth and its people. Extreme weather events, wildfires, melting glaciers, sea level rise, and other environmental disasters have become common. One million plant and animal species are now at risk of extinction. Ecological disasters displace approximately 24 million people per year. Despite restrictions posed by the pandemic, RSHM have been able to engage in a number of socially distanced actions over the past several weeks. We participated in a virtual cosmic walk created by Sister Barbara Bailey (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XsP2GCetv30); tended and prayed in our gardens in Mozambique, Belo Horizonte (Brazil), Murtosa and Braga (Portugal), Penmaenmawr (Wales), Rome (Italy), Lusaka (Zambia), and Tarrytown (New York US); shared resources from the Eco-Congregation Ireland (https://www.ecocongregationireland.com/; and engaged with local parishes in Liverpool, Béziers, and New York.
