The Sisters in our community in Galway celebrating the close of the celebration of the month of Creation in September 2021. Their Sharing on the Creation Table began with contributions from everyone in the Community.
The Dawn Chorus brought joy to our hearts as we listened to thrushes, wrens, blackbirds, robins, chaffinches, doves, pheasants and a host of others. We imitated them with by singing ‘O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder’.
Scripture Readings from Genesis Wisdom and Colossians were interspersed with personal sharings around the significance of what each brought to the table. Our presence to one another meant that some gifts struck us afresh and thus the sharing was rich.
The lovely Canticle of Creation by Angela Creagh was spoken aloud.
Lastly ‘Care for Our Common Home’ a booklet brought out by ‘The Missionary Sisters of the Holy Rosary’ was introduced. Each sister committed to reading this booklet it is hoped to move towards using more ‘Green’ cleaning products as a result.
