Daily Readings, Daily Meditation, & Saint of the Day
"I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes."
E. E. Cummings
The beautiful campus at Saint Gregory the Great encompasses over six acres in a natural setting of native shrubs, plants, grassy slopes, trees and meditative walkways. Enhancing and maintaining God’s creation in this environment creates an opportunity for parish stewards to participate in nature’s glory and uphold its beauty for those utilizing the parish grounds.
The members of the gardening ministry have been working diligently on several areas of our campus which many parishioners do not frequently visit. Two of these areas are the St. Francis Garden, sometimes known as the Clivia Garden, and the Succulent Garden. The St. Francis Garden is located at the rear of the church and the Succulent Garden is located just to the left of the bell tower. Both of these gardens are now in full bloom and we would like to encourage everyone to go and have a look and enjoy the bounty of nature! While you are up at the bell tower, do notice the 12 new rose bushes planted just under the bell. Two of them are climbing roses which, hopefully, will soon be climbing up and adorning a couple of the posts.
