GARDINER STREET PARISH OCTOBER TALKS
start on 5th October. This year we will offer a very interesting program based on the Universal Apostolic Preferences of the Society of Jesus. 

* Showing the way to God through the Spiritual Exercises and discernment
* Walking with the poor, the outcasts of the world, those whose dignity has been violated 
* Accompanying young people in the creation of a hope-filled future
* Caring for our Common Home

FINDING GOD AT WORK
The relationships you have, the results you achieve, the quality and mindfulness with which you do your work can all be the stuff of holiness. Plus, the money you earn to support your family and the esteem you hold as a contributor to the world can either help serve the kingdom or be an impediment to it. Each day we “suit up and show up” at work we get opportunities to learn more about ourselves and to contribute our gifts to the good of the world.
 
ECOTIPS
POPE’S SEPTEMBER PRAYER INTENTION: FOR PROTECTING THE OCEANS
In his prayer intention for the month of September 2019, Pope Francis invites us to pray that “politicians, scientists and economists work together to protect the world’s seas and oceans.”
“Oceans contain the bulk of our planet’s water supply, and also most of the immense variety of living creatures, many of them are threatened for various reasons.
Creation is a project of love given by God to humanity.
Our solidarity with the “common home” is born from our faith.
Let us pray this month that politicians, scientists and economists work together to protect the world’s seas and oceans.”
