The Season of Creation is as an annual time of prayer, education and action. During the Season of Creation, we join our sisters and brothers in the ecumenical family in prayer and action for our common home.

This year, amid crises that have shaken our world, we’re awakened to the urgent need to heal our relationships with creation and each other. During the season this year, we enter a time of restoration and hope, a jubilee for our Earth, that requires radically new ways of living with creation.

Beginning September 1, the Day of Prayer for Creation, and running through October 4, the Feast of St. Francis (patron saint of ecology), Christians across the ecumenical spectrum are encouraged to join together in prayer for creation and environmental stewardship.  

This season is a special time for the Creator and each other. Some of us pray, some of us do hands-on projects, some of us advocate. We all protect creation.  

The momentum continues long after the season ends through ongoing prayer and changes in lifestyle and advocacy, such as eliminating the use of single-use plastic products in parishes and supporting the new Global Goals for Sustainable Development.
