Innsbruck: Churches invite to shared Creation Prayer

Ecumenical "Prayer for Mother Earth" on 3 October in the Jesuit Church closes Church Season of Creation- Diocese of Innsbruck elaborates sustainability strategy

The Christian churches in Tyrol invite you to a joint "Prayer for Mother Earth" in the Innsbruck Jesuit Church on Tuesday, 3 October, at 6 pm. The prayer is the liturgical ending in Tyrol for the Church Season of Creation (1 September to 4 October). Within the framework of the prayer in the Jesuit Church, the concern about the shared home - "Mother Earth" - is to be expressed, the organisers say. The diocesan administrator, Jakob Bürgler will also participate in the prayer.


The Head of the Innsbruck office for Pastoral Care, Elisabeth Rathgeb, pointed out in a letter on Monday the close connection between the preservation of creation and the commitment to peace and justice. "We have only one world, and good life for all people now and in the future is possible, and we have to look at the whole," says Rathgeb.

The diocese of Innsbruck is striving for a clear sign of the preservation of creation and is currently working on a sustainability strategy. This will be discussed in the autumn and will be passed in November, announced the Head of the Innsbruck office for Pastoral Care.
