What is the Season of Creation?
The Season of Creation begins on the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation (September 1) and ends on October 4, the feast of Saint Francis of Assisi. Saint Francis of Assisi is the patron saint of ecology. The 34 day event is a time to renew our relationship with our Creator and all creation through celebration, conversion, and commitment together. The theme for 2020 is “Jubilee for the Earth: New Rhythms, New Hope.”
Occasional burns keep the prairie ecosystem healthy. Burns remove non-native plants, allowing prairie plants room to grow and providing necessary nutrients. Prairie plants survive fires because of their deep roots.
Restoration work is mostly about keeping invasive plants out of an ecosystem than “managing“ what nature does. Invasive plants are non-native, grow quickly, and take over or choke out native plants.
A healthy approach to restoration does not require massive use of chemicals or clear-cutting. It requires attentiveness and openness to learning what an ecosystem has to teach us.
During the Season of Creation Sister Anita will be sharing a series of Zoom sessions to stimulate your creative side and use the gifts of creation. Call 787-6927 or email us for scheduling and pricing information.
