Earth Day – April 22nd

Heavenly Father and Mother, thank you for our life-giving Earth that we celebrate today on Earth Day. Bless all the celebrations, educational programs, and projects that seek to express our appreciation for this great gift. May we be zealous for the Earth not just today, but every day of our lives. Guide us in the monumental and important mission of restoring the integrity of creation. We dedicate our lives anew to you and to this great work of our time. This we pray through Christ and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Prayer from the CSJ Ministry for Social Justice, Peace, and Care of Earth

The radio stated that Queen Elizabeth is hitting age 90! What a coincidence that our Elizabeth Scully is also turning 90!

On Wednesday, April 20, Sister Elizabeth Scully will celebrate her 90th Birthday. We will have a small celebration on the actual day, but the real celebration will take place on Saturday, April 23 between 2:00 and 4:00. We will gather in the big parlor to the left of the main door. We invite CND Sisters to "drop in for a short visit" with her to share some memories and some simple refreshments. If you are not free that day, come and visit with her at your convenience. She loves visitors! Think of this as coming to "parlor" with someone who has given so much to so many of us CND's.
