CARE FOR GOD'S CREATION: The Archdiocese Climate Change Task Force is providing sample bulletin announcements once a month that include a sample
prayer/reflection, quote from the Holy See, and energy-saving/care for creation tip.
Prayer/Reflection: God, who is love, we thank you for your many good gifts-for the beauty of creation, for its rich and varied fruits, for water, air, food and shelter,
animals and plants. Forgive the times we have taken them and the earth's resources for granted. Transform our hearts and minds so that we may learn to care
and share your creation with respect for all living things. Amen.
Quote from the Holy See: A Christian who does not protect creation, who does not let it grow, is a Christian who does not care about the work of God, that work
that was born from the love of God for us. And this is the first response to the first Creation: protect creation, make it grow." -Pope Francis, Homily, Feb. 9, 2015.
Care for Creation Tip: Earth Friendly Cleaners: Use earth friendly cleaners. These prevent caustic chemicals going down the drain and contaminating our water
systems and harming the creatures in that water as well. There are lots of alternative cleaning products available from which we can choose. One way to identify
them is to check with the U.S. EPA's "Safer Choice" program (aka "Design for the Environment"). Check out their website for a list of products that are reportedly
safer for you, your family, and the environment: http://www2.epa.gov/saferchoice.

CHILDREN IN CHURCH:
After the christening of his baby brother in church, Jason sobbed all the way home in the back seat of the car. His father asked him three times what was wrong.
Finally, the boy replied, "That preacher said he wanted us brought up in a Christian home, and I wanted to stay with you guys."
A mother was preparing pancakes for her sons, Kevin 5, and Ryan 3. The boys began to argue over who would get the first pancake. Their mother saw the
opportunity for a moral lesson. "If Jesus were sitting here, He would say, 'Let my brother have the first pancake, I can wait.' Kevin turned to his younger brother
and said, "Ryan, you be Jesus!"
VOCATION VIEW: If you are willing to share what you have, God will multiply your gifts. Imagine how God can use you to nourish a hungry world. Consider being
a sister, brother, priest, or deacon. (John 6:1-13)
