In their letter for this year’s Season of Creation, Christian faith leaders write that ‘we are part of a single, wondrously complex web of life that is woven by God. … During the Season of Creation, we unite as one family in Christ, celebrating the bonds we share with each other and with “every living creature on earth” (Genesis 9:10)’. In this spirit of unity with all creation, every Wednesday during September sisters and staff came together at the Mercy Hub in Melbourne for a series of reflective gatherings led by Anne Pate, Mercy Hub Program & Activities Facilitator. The conclusion of the worldwide Season of Creation was celebrated at the Mercy Hub on Wednesday October 2nd, when guest speaker Veronica Lawson rsm challenged those present to reflect on how we are called to respond to the cry of earth throughout the year. The sisters and staff who participated in the Season of Creation 2019 at the Mercy Hub greatly appreciated the opportunities to reflect, to learn and to be challenged.
