Sacred Paths at Hammonasset:
Rejoicing in Creation by the Sound
Hundreds of thousands gather year-round at Hammonasset State Park, where sea, sand, marsh and sky create the gentle
landscape of Long Island Sound's north coast.
At 2 p.m., Saturday, September 21, we will gather at the Park's Meigs Point Nature Center in a spirit of Christian
pilgrimage to give thanks for the sacred beauty of God's Creation. We will walk from beach to rock-formed point to salt marsh. At each place, we will praise the beauty around us. We will learn more
about the wonders we see. We will give thanks for those who protect and nourish these gifts. We will lament the harm we have done.We will pray for continued restoration and healing of Earth through
God's Spirit and human hands.
While we as organizers come from Episcopal churches in the region, we invite everyone who would join us in praising God's
works, and praying for humanity's efforts to care for "this fragile Earth, our island home," as expressed in our Book of Common Prayer.
We invite all to join us on that Saturday of the autumnal equinox. Registration is not required. (It will be helpful to
us, though, to know who will be joining us, so as we get closer, there will be a way to let us know that you'll be there.)
All will be welcome that day. For those who are physically challenged, the walking will be light and nearby parking will
Entrance to the Park is free after Labor day.
Please join us!
