Season of Creation at Eucharistic Heart of Jesus parish
The Eucharistic Heart of Jesus Parish in Cambridge, East London, went ‘all out’ during this very important season of creation in the life of our Church. Faith and the way we relate with the environment are very important – not just ‘distant nature’, but crucially, the place where we live – and the ways in which our lifestyles and decisions endanger both the natural world and those inhabiting it, both humans and other creatures.
Dominican Sister Aloysia Zellmann summarised the Season of Creation guidelines into ‘bite size’ pieces for every day during the 4 week period. These were then e-mailed and sent via WhatsApp to our parishioners.
About 200 potted Spekboom plants were handed out to parishioners after Mass. Hazel Mopp and a group of the Confirmation Candidates as well as parish priest Fr Varghese Kannanaickal CMI, potted slips of this very easily grown plant. Tags with details of where to plant as well as the benefits of growing them were attached to each plant.
Some of the benefits of Spekboom are:
- It improves the quality of the air we breathe and helps fight climate change
- Spekboom is a proudly South African plant
- It’s water-wise
- Suitable for all seasons and weather conditions
- It’s easy to grow
