Bishop Denis Nulty, in whose diocese the National Ploughing Championship (17th to 19th September) is being held, invites all visitors to vote for their favourite traditional prayer, and to compose a prayer for the protection of the environment. In the two months leading up to the event, people all around the country are asked to choose their favourite prayer; the Rosary or the Lord’s Prayer, perhaps a prayer learnt at their mother’s knee or handed down ó ghlúin go glúin in their family. The Championship takes place in the middle of the annual Church Season of Creation, which focuses on rural living. People are invited to submit a personal prayer (max 100 words) about the environment. This environmentally centred prayer could relate to farming, gardening or sustainability. Bishop Nulty is extending his ‘Prayer at the Ploughing’ challenge to people of all ages and all faiths. He is hopeful that many school children will take up the challenge to write their own ‘green’ prayer. Entries can be sent to
