Season of Creation

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.

  • Week 1: Celebrating Forests
  • Week 2: Celebrating Land
  • Week 3: Celebrating The Outback
  • Week 4: Celebrating Rivers
  • Week 5: Protectors of God’s Gifts (coinciding with the Feast of St Francis of Assisi)
Throughout the month-long celebration, the world’s 2.2 billion Christians come together to care for our common home.

This is a simple prayer for creation and it may be one that you share with your children.

All-powerful God,
you are present in the whole universe and in the smallest of your creatures.
You embrace with your tenderness all that exists.
Pour out upon us the power of your love, that we may protect life and beauty.
