The Church in Creation

Lord of all the waters of oceans, rivers, aquifers and lakes, evaporation and rain
grant us humility before the resources of the world to respect their limits and to acknowledge our dependence on them.
May the waters of the world remind us of the grace of life and the depth of your love,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

1st Reading: Phil 1:21-30


Prayer for Young People
We pray for our youth contemplating their career choices in challenging economic times; those who are employed for growth in those opportunities; those who feel despair because of rejection of applications for work; those who are single parents; those hurting from broken relationships; Jesus envelope them ever closer to you and help them. Amen.

Commission & Benediction

Lord, allow my ears to listen to the cry of the earth, the voices of my sisters and brothers,
those who face the harsh reality of climate change. Lord, send me.

Lord, allow my eyes to see the beauty of creation,
in flowers, creatures, forests, and cities alike.
Lord send me.

Lord, allow my voice to speak out for justice
and ensure people living in poverty are heard.
Lord, Send me.

Lord, allow my hands to care for the earth,
to toil, to reap, to celebrate.
Lord, Send me.

Lord, allow my feet to take the path less trod,
to walk the extra mile, to carry your compassion out to the world.
Lord, Send me.

Through the blessing of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, may you go forth with joy to care for creation. Amen.

We go in peace to love and serve the Lord,
In the name of Christ. Amen.
