Care for Our Common Home – Clean Up Yarra Bend Park
August 31 at 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
“Earth cries out to us because of the harm we have inflicted on her by our irresponsible use and abuse of the goods with which God has endowed her. We have come to see ourselves as her lords and masters, entitled to plunder her at will.” Pope Francis – Laudato Si (2015)
Pope Francis invites us into an ecological conversion whereby our hearts encounter that deep connection with the Presence that is God in Nature. This day at the beginning of the Season of Creation offers “individual believers and communities a fitting opportunity to reaffirm their personal vocation to be stewards of creation?” Pope Francis
Participants are invited to spend a morning helping clean up rubbish in the Yarra Bend Park around the Yarra River. Please wear some old clothes, bring some gloves and bring a bottle of water.
