Season of Creation - Growing Hope Week

Sunday, 27th September to Sunday, 4th October

Since this year’s Season of Creation started on 1st September many schools and parishes have been really active online sharing their exiting and creative projects on the wonders of nature and the message of how important it is for each one of us to do at least one small thing to care for all of God’s creation.

The Diocese of Derry is helping and encouraging schools, parishes and families to reflect on what each one of us can do to protect our environment around us - in our homes, in our town, in our parish, in our diocese and beyond.

From Sunday, 27th September to Sunday, 4th October the Diocese will mark the week as 'Growing Hope Week’.

During 'Growing Hope Week’ we will share on our website, Zoom and social media channels, a daily programme of prayer, live Mass, school projects, film clips, live interviews and guests speakers from parishes and schools across the diocese on the theme, Season of Creation. We are encouraging everyone, young and old to get involved.

To be part of this:

Families are encouraged to allocate time each day of that week to sit and eat together, to pray together and reflect on the the Season and make one small change to help nature.

Be part of 'Growing Hope Week’. Encourage others to be part of it.
