Embracing the spirit of the encyclical Laudato si by Pope Francis, we are blessed to have several talented parishioners who share their gifts by tending the gardens around St Ann Church. We are grateful for the beauty they surround us with as we gather together, giving us a physical reminder to care for our planet.
“LAUDATO SI’, mi’ Signore” – “Praise be to you, my Lord”. In the words of this beautiful canticle, Saint Francis of Assisi reminds us that our common home is like a sister with whom we share our life and a beautiful mother who opens her arms to embrace us. “Praise be to you, my Lord, through our Sister, Mother Earth, who sustains and governs us, and who produces various fruit with coloured flowers and herbs”.
~Pope Francis, Laudato si (#1)
