The Season of Creation is celebrated from September 1 to October 4.

Pope Francis called on all people to take “decisive, urgent action” during the Season of Creation in order to “transform this crisis into an opportunity.”

The Season of Creation is the annual Christian celebration of prayer and action for our common home. Together, the ecumenical family around the world unites to protect and advocate for God’s creation.

The season starts 1 September, the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation, and ends 4 October, the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of ecology beloved by many Christian denominations.

“The cry of the Earth and the cry of the poor are becoming increasingly serious and alarming, and they call for a decisive and urgent action to transform this crisis into an opportunity”, said the Pope during the Angelus prayer on Sunday, 29 August

Now is the time to increase our commitment and see what we can do by joining with other people of good will who respect and protect creation and strive to eradicate poverty. The theme of this year's campaign is A Home for All? Renewing the Oikos of God.
