Join us during the Season of Creation, September 1, thru October 4th in prayer, hands-on projects and advocacy for our Planet
From September to October each year, the Christian community celebrates the Season of Creation by praying and acting together to protect our common home. The season is celebrated by tens of thousands of Christians around the world annually.
The Season of Creation begins on September 1, the World Day of Prayer for Creation. We invite you to plan your participation in the season, and, as a first step, to visit SeasonOfCreation.org. You’ll find a wealth of resources and a registration form for your event.

Gardens at Palmdale Dedication
On May 10, 2019 the Sisters of the Holy Family deeded the 5.5 acre meditative landscape area to the Gardens at Palmdale, Inc. as a private park open to the public. The mission of the Gardens at Palmdale Inc. is to preserve and maintain the land as open space in perpetuity, to insure it’s ecological and natural environment to provide an oasis of natural beauty. This act is also an expression of the Sisters commitment to living out the United Nations Earth Charter as a reverence and celebration of life on these sacred grounds.
