Season of Creation Spotlight: Mbarara, Uganda

As part of the Season of Creation, an interfaith group has held a beautiful prayer service and street clean-up in Mbarara, which is located in western Uganda.

The first day of this 2-day event was focused on diving into the Laudato Si’ encyclical. Young Franciscans from around Uganda met at Kakoba Franciscan Community to receive training on Laudato Si’ and reflect on its role in their lives.

On the second day, the Franciscans were joined by their Muslim and Anglican sisters and brothers, as well as by traders and politicians. The united group organized a street cleaning in Mbarara. It was a wonderful way to put their faith into action.

This event, along with hundreds of others around the world celebrates the Season of Creation, when we’re called to prayerfully reflect on our role as protectors of the Earth. Christians around the world are standing together to address climate change and commit to sustainable stewardship of Creation.
