A unique and transformative prayer experience has taken root, weaving together spirituality and environmental stewardship at St. Bridget College, IBEd Department, October 27, 2023.
The Eco-Rosary initiative has become a symbol of the institution’s commitment to nurturing both the soul and the planet, creating a harmonious blend of faith and ecological mindfulness.
The Eco-Rosary is not confined to the walls of a church. Instead, students and faculty are encouraged to take their prayer beads outdoors, immersing themselves in the beauty of nature. This intentional shift from indoor to outdoor prayer spaces fosters a deep sense of connection with the environment, allowing participants to appreciate the divine in the world around them.
Each bead of the Eco-Rosary becomes a moment of mindful reflection on God’s creation. As individuals move through the prayers, they are invited to contemplate the beauty of the Earth and their role in its preservation. The meditative rhythm of the Rosary encourages a spiritual connection with nature, fostering gratitude and a renewed sense of responsibility for ecological well-being.
As St. Bridget College, IBEd Department continues to nurture hearts and minds, the Eco-Rosary stands as a living expression of their dedication to holistic education—one that embraces the divine, respects nature, and inspires individuals to become compassionate stewards of the planet.
Through this innovative initiative, St. Bridget College has sown the seeds of a prayerful and eco-conscious community, rooted in faith and flourishing in harmony with God’s creation.
