Earth Day 2021: Care for Our Common Home

Earth Day 2021:  Care for Our Common Home

Happy Earth Day: April 22, 2021


As we gather this Earth Day in praise and thanksgiving for
Creation, offered to each of us by our Creator, let us call to mind
how we depend on and care for our common home

God, Creator of All, we offer our prayer in gratitude and humility that we might heed your call to care for one another through our care of the least, the lowest and the most vulnerable of all your blessed creation.


Grant, we pray, the courage to speak on behalf of the soft soil under our feet, the running and still waters, the warmth of the sun on our face, and all the crawling, flying and swimming creatures you love.


May our courage to speak translate into actions that protect our planet – so that our children and their children might enjoy the fruits of what we sow. In your name, we pray: AMEN

(CHA: Catholic Health Association of the US)

Bishop's Column: Confident in Our Faith
September 2021 Four County Catholic Confident in Our Faith My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, Inspiration can come to us in many ways. Sometimes the source of inspiration can surprise us. I had such a moment recently. While Storm Ida was rattling the windows of my office and I was praying for the people of New Orleans, I recalled a conversation I had about a decade ago with a retired Coast Guard Commander, a conversation that gave me the opportunity to share how much I admire the courage and dedication of all who serve in the Coast Guard. At one point we discu...
