FAIRFIELD—St. Anthony of Padua Church in Fairfield observed the end of the Season of Creation with special celebrations at its Masses on the weekend of October 2-3.
In his homily, Father John Mulreany, S.J. emphasized how we all need to return to a right relationship with nature and protect God’s creation. He cited the Laudato Si’ Action Platform and its call for eco-justice for the world’s poor.
S.A.V.E. (St. Anthony’s Values the Environment committee) created educational posters focusing on everyday ways parishioners could foster a more sustainable environment including recycling, composting, reducing waste, and creating pollinator pathways. The information was well-received by parishioners.
