Greetings all, attached for your reflection is the Carmelite JPIC newsletter for September. 

May the coming of Spring bring warmth to your body and spirit, may it lighten your steps

and give you renewed vigour and faith in the Lord.


·         Starts: Tuesday September 1 – World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation

Pope Francis recently proclaimed this day as a day of prayer for creation, because he shares the concern of Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople of the  Orthodox Church who has initiated this day since 1989, to “draw from our rich spiritual heritage the reasons which feed our passion for the care of creation” (see full letter).

·         Ends: October 4 – Feast of St Francis

The feast of St Francis of Assisi is a major day of celebration, to reflect on the life of the Patron of Ecology and author of the Canticle of the Creatures.

      YOUR CARMELITE JPIC TEAM, Paul, Denis and Gabrielle
