The Season of Creation is a time to renew our relationship with our Creator and all creation through celebration, conversion, and commitment together. During the Season of Creation, we join our sisters and brothers in the ecumenical family in prayer and action for our common home.
The season starts 1 September, the Day of Prayer for Creation, and ends 4 October, the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of ecology beloved by many Christian denominations.
Throughout the month-long celebration, the world’s 2.2 billion Christians come together to care for our common home. To find out more visit the Season of Creation website.

Letters of Creation is also a great idea to encourage children and young people to take part. Children and young people under 30 are invited to write letters reflecting on what caring for creation means to them and how they want their voice to be heard in the climate justice conversation.
