From September to October each year, the Christian community celebrates the Season of Creation by praying and acting together to protect our common home.
During this time Catholics unite with others in the global family to pray and protect every creature in God’s beautifully complex web of creation.
The theme of this year’s Season of Creation celebration is “The Web of Life.”
The Season of Creation begins on September 1, with the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation.
On this day we raise to God our thanks for the marvellous works that have been entrusted to our care, and we ask for God’s help as we take action to protect our planet and all of its creatures.
Pope Francis in calling us to an ecological conversion says that,
“The annual World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation offers to individual believers and to the community a precious opportunity to renew our personal participation in this vocation to be custodians of creation.”
