On the occasion of the Season of Creation, the Church’s Environment Commission and the Justice and Peace Commission are organising a seminar inspired by the figure of Saint Hildegard of Bingen and her contribution to the development of eco-spirituality.

During this seminar, different workshops will be held during which participants will be able to explore in more detail the writing, music, art and appreciation of medicinal herbs of a woman with a strong message and contribution to our time. Saint Hildegard is an important figure in today’s society because of the need to rediscover our Christian roots and traditions to understand the present better.

The seminar will be held on Saturday, 24 September 2022, at the Monastery of Saint Peter in Mdina, between 9:30am and 1pm. All those who wish to attend must register in advance by sending an email to [email protected].

This is one of the activities that the Church in Malta is undertaking to celebrate the Season of Creation (between September 1 and October 4) and will be joining other Christian Churches all over the world to raise awareness of our commitment to listen to the voice of creation and safeguard the entire environment, including one another.
