Yellow Pine Community Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation

A Community Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation will be held on Tuesday, September 1, 2015, 10:00-11:30 a.m., in the Outdoor Cathedral (indoors if inclement weather), at Holy Family Church, surrounded by the beauty of nature. Holy Family Church is located at 8950 County Highway J, Woodruff.

All area residents and visitors, including persons of all faith traditions, are invited to come together for this important experience of prayer and support for Mother Earth. Leaders of several local churches will be participating in this event.

Pope Francis has proclaimed September 1 as World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation. The gathering will provide time to pray for Creation and an opportunity to make a personal commitment to care for the earth.

This day of prayer is sponsored by Marywood Franciscan Spirituality Center and Holy Family Parish. For more information, contact Marywood at 715-385-3750 or marywood.center@gmail.com.

Spiritual Direction
Spiritual Direction is a ministry of listening and supporting persons in their experience of God's action and presence in his or her life. A person engages a spiritual director to listen and to give support in looking honestly at their unique relationship with God in everyday life. The Marywood staff includes six certified and experienced spiritual directors. For more information, visit the website: marywoodsc.com and click on “Spiritual Direction” and/or “Staff.” The certified spiritual directors at Marywood also offer their services via Skype. You can save time and money: No need to drive to Marywood unless you prefer to do so.
