St. John the Evangelist’s Care for Creation Committee is inspired by Pope Francis’ 2015 encyclical Laudato Si. The committee’s mission is to educate our faith community on the moral imperative expressed in Laudato Si and inspire prayer, learning, advocacy, and action to protect the living environment of which we are a part.

The Committee holds an open meeting at 7:30 on the second Thursday of every month in the school Resource Room. We welcome the ideas, the energy, and the prayers of every parishioner. As Pope Francis reminds us, “the natural environment is a collective good, the patrimony of all humanity, and the responsibility of everyone” (Laudato Si, 95).

To learn more, contact Mary Liepold, srliepolds@verizon.net, 301 593-4999, or Regina Carelli, Carelli@erols.com.

Oración de un evangelista

Señor Jesús, que quiere que nos convirtamos en una fuerza viva para toda la humanidad, las luces brillando en el mundo. Quiere que seamos luces radiantes como estamos a tu lado, la gran luz, bañado en tu gloria, oh Luz del Cielo. Vamos a disfrutar más y más la luz pura y deslumbrante de la Santísima Trinidad, como ahora que hemos recibido, aunque no en su plenitud, un rayo de su esplendor, que procede del único y verdadero Dios, en Cristo Jesús, nuestro Señor, a quien sea la gloria y el poder por los siglos de los siglos. Amén.

-St. Gregorio Naciancino (330-390)
