Season of Creation….Love for Creation …join us!
The Vatican is inviting all communities of faith and families to join in the ecumenical celebration of the Season of Creation from September 1 – October 4, 2019. Find a USCCB bulletin insert with more information, and ways your community can participate with prayer and action to protect our common home.
The Season of Creation is an annual celebration of prayer and action to protect creation. It is celebrated by Christians of all traditions, and the leaders of faith traditions have encouraged the faithful to participate.
The Season of Creation is celebrated annually by tens of thousands of Christians around the world. Local, volunteer event hosts on six continents organize celebrations in their communities. These range from prayer services to litter clean-ups to advocacy actions.
The season begins September 1, the Day of Prayer for Creation, and runs through October 4, the Feast of St. Francis, who is the patron saint of ecology in many traditions. The theme of this year’s celebration is “the web of life”. As brothers and sisters in Christ, we are on a pilgrimage to better care of creation.

The Season of Creation is covered widely in the press, including coverage last year in CNN, La Vie, Crux, Toscano Oggi, Argentina’s Catholic Information Agency, and Carta de Notícias.
