Season of Creation in Namaqualand
The parish of St Augustine’s O’Kiep with its outstations celebrated a wonderful Season of Creation full of creativity and vibrancy!
In Concordia they held an open air church service, with Sunday School children sharing their stories through creative artwork about God’s Creation.
Elders Hester (89 years) and Oom Willieboy and Oom Piet planted trees.
Members of the congregation signed the environmental pledge
A celebration of St Francis day marked the end of the Season of Creation
Sunday School held an exhibition to show the children’s understanding of God’s Creation.
There was the admission of new Altar Servers.
The Confirmation Candidates shared their spiritual journey of the previous week’s spiritual hike and workshop at Namaqua National Park.
The Season ended as we planted trees as we commit ourselves again to be loyal stewards of God’s Creation.
