Season of Creation ~ Jubilee for the Earth: Study Individually or Join a Contemplative Study Group

The annual ecumenical SEASON OF CREATION is a time to renew our relationship with our Creator and all creation through repenting, repairing, and rejoicing together. This year, amid crises that have shaken our world, we are awakened to the urgent need to heal our relationships with creation and each other. During the season this year, we enter a time of restoration and hope, a Jubilee for our Earth.

Our Dominican Family invites our Sisters, Associates and Friends to celebrate the SEASON with prayer and study that relates to the current “voting season.”
Study modules have been developed on the intersection of climate crisis, migration, and racism. Two documents are involved:

Climate Change is the Overarching Life Issue: Continuing Conversations in this Election Year 2020 from the Eco-Justice Committee of the Dominican Alliance

A Reflective Voting Guide: Creating Communion at the Intersection of Racism, Migration, and Climate Crisis from the LCWR Region 7 (MI & IND) Promoters of Justice. See more information about the guide in the previous article.

These documents may be studied individually and/or in small groups. DCM discussions are restricted due to COVID-19. If you are off campus, please participate through ZOOM on a day of your choice. The leader of the group will send you the ZOOM link to use.

The groups will start during the week of Sept. 21 and will meet four times.
