The Season of Creation is celebrated annually by tens of thousands of Christians around
the world. During the Season of Creation, we pray and act to protect God’s creation.
The Season of Creation is celebrated by Christians across the ecumenical spectrum, and
the leaders of many faith traditions have encouraged us to participate.
The season begins on Sunday September 1, the Day of Prayer for Creation, and runs through
to Friday October 4, the Feast of St. Francis, who is the patron saint of ecology in many traditions.
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. By seeding ongoing prayer,
changes in lifestyle, and advocacy, the season grows hope in our communities each
year. It’s powerfully good work that’s urgently needed.
This annual celebration is supported by a steering committee that provides materials
and suggests a theme each year. The suggested theme for this year’s celebration is “The
Web of Life.” During these weeks, let us unite with others to protect all species and give glory of the Creator that they reveal.
