Created by God: A Celebration of the Dignity of Life
The ADW Offices of Life Issues, Special Needs, and Social Concerns invite you to a Mass celebrating life and all of God’s creation! Please join us on October 3, 2021 at St. Joseph Parish in Largo, MD to celebrate the dignity of human life and our call to care for all of God’s creation.
Ways you can participate:
- Join us at Mass in-person or via livestream.
- Share this flier widely with your network and community.
- Take a picture or video of you or your parish group or ministry saying, signing or texting “I care for God’s creation!” As Catholics, we care for all of God’s creation, especially life at all stages and abilities. For all people to thrive, we must also care for our common home, Earth, which is also part of God’s creation. Remember, actions speak louder than words, so we invite you to take photos and videos that show how you care for all of God’s creation through prayer, advocacy or service. Join the conversation on social media using #ADWCaresforCreation and tell us why you stand for life at all stages and abilities.
- Take action! As a parish community, encourage your community members to work with your pastor to:
- start a Laudato Si’ Green Team at your parish. Contact the Office of Social Concerns to learn more about how parishes can support Laudato Si’ efforts, and learn more about the Laudato Si’ Action Plan here.
- host a baby supply drive at your parish for a local pregnancy center or St. Ann’s Infant and Maternity Home. Contact the Office of Life Issues to learn more about how to support life at all stages.
- support persons with disabilities by working with them to make your parish more accessible. Contact the Office of Special Needs Ministry to learn about ways to make spaces and events more accessible to all of God’s children.
