                       Isaiah 42:11 “Let the wilderness lift up its voice”
               Sept 20th is the 3rd Sunday of Creation for wilderness/outback
This weeks wilderness/outback takes us to the creations of the wild, things that would be in the desert or rugged areas.
 
The challenge this week is to bring the wilderness/outback by symbols of the wild. Take pictures of symbols of the wilderness or outback to share on face book, St Patrick HdG Faith Formation page,  and explain what the symbol is and how we can care for it. Or draw pictures of the wild/outback and post on face book.
