'LAUDATO SI’, mi’ Signore' – 'Praise be to you, my Lord'. "In the words of this beautiful canticle, Saint Francis of Assisi reminds us that our common home is like a sister with whom we share our life and a beautiful mother who opens her arms to embrace us" (Pope Francis).
This month we celebrate the Feast of St. Francis while also reflecting on the Diocesan theme this month for preparing for the Year of Mercy , "The Dignity all People". Being a peacemaker means being able to see and change social injustices. Our opening prayer this month leads us to this reflection and asks St. Francis, faithful servant and disciple, to be our example and strength.
This month's packet can be found below with other notes, suggested websites from our discussions and
