From the Old Testament, Genesis:
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
Our celebration of Creation Day begins with man at the center of God’s work. As part of our Creation Day activities, students from Pre-K through 8th grade will be participating in a book swap. Students should bring in a book or books to be donated to the book swap and on Creation Day they will be able to pick out a "new to you" book from the book swap to bring home and enjoy.
We will also be collecting items that can be used in the local animal shelter. This is one way we can follow the path of St. Francis of Assisi. Our children will be carrying the message that God is the Creator of the universe, and it is our charge to protect and defend what He has placed in our care. Please help your children to carry this message with them.
