Earth Day is on 22nd April this year, we are invited to take further action to End Plastic Pollution.
Plastic pollution is poisoning our oceans and land, injuring marine life, and affecting our health!
St Marie Eugenie recognised that: "God the Father wills that the riches of Creation belong to all." and "We should try to avoid the suffering of anything that lives"
Pope Francis reminded us:
“Creation is not a property, which we can rule over at will; or, even less, is the property of only a few: Creation is a gift, it is a wonderful gift that God has given us, so that we care for it and we use it for the benefit of all, always with great respect and gratitude. Safeguard Creation. Because if we destroy Creation, Creation will destroy us! Never forget this!”
"Above all there is a sense of deep urgency and profound concern for the precarious state of our common planetary home."
The feast of Our Lady’s Assumption is always a special occasion, but this year it was marked with extra significance.
Milleret House is closed for the summer.
We are delighted that Sister Rekha has been elected as new General Superior for the Religious of the Assumption. Sr Rekha Chennattu is a Scripture scholar from the Indian Province of the Congregation.
