Harvest is one of the most wonderful times of celebration in the Church year. There is unbridled joy at the beauty of creation. At harvest time we thank God, for the fruits of the earth which have been given to us, and all of the opportunities made available to us from the world and its resources. Yet this planet is not ours to do what we want with. It is made by God and we are privileged to have a time here to look after and enjoy it. The expectation is that we will pass it on to our children in a better condition than we found it.
We celebrate this year by asking for donations (for Readifood) which will form part of our offertory procession at 11am Sunday Mass.
