Care for Creation Day
More than 125 people gathered at the Soboba Indian Reservation in San Jacinto on October 5th for Diocesan Care for Creation Day. Attendees reflected on Catholic teaching about the ecology and learned ways they can personally practice environmental stewardship. At the close of the day parishes, Catholic schools and the Diocese were honored for their implementation of solar projects. Bishop Barnes received a special award from the California Catholic Conference for his role in the development of the California Bishops' recent pastoral statement on the Care for Our Common Home.
