Extra! Extra! Read all about it! October is a VERY full month at Resurrection and around the world. Read below for opportunities to learn, pray, give and grow!

News

Season of Creation - This is the last week of the Season of Creation, but barely the first week of Autumn! Continue to appreciate the beautiful colors and seasons of God.

"Let ours be a time remembered for the awakening of a new reverence for life, the firm resolve to achieve sustainability, the quickening of the struggle for justice and peace, and the joyful celebration of life." - The Earth Charter

October is Respect Life Month - Life is comprised not only of it's creation, but of it's healthy promotion, a "seamless garment" if you will. The US Catholic Bishops have assembled a page of resources as they relate to many aspects of human dignity. Most recently the Bishops launched an initiative called #sharethejourney relating to encountering and caring for refugees and migrants. We don't all need to be informed and active in every area, but every area of human dignity and worth must be protected and promoted. Check out the wonderful resources here!
