Fall is here! The beauty of the leaves changing and the coolness of the air give us a great opportunity to enjoy nature. Very soon the winter weather will be upon us, and for many it will be preferable to spend a lot of time inside.

While there is still nice weather, make sure to take your family out to appreciate it!

St. Francis of Assisi had a deep appreciation for the world around him and was able to see God’s presence there. So, like St. Francis, let’s get out into this marvelous creation to see and appreciate the magnificent work of God!
