Season of Creation 2019

Every Christian community around the world is invited to celebrate “The Season of Creation” in its own way. It is a privileged moment to pray, reflect and take concrete measures to preserve creation and to integrate our concerns for the “Common House” into our daily attitudes and behaviours.

    • September 1st, World Day of Prayer for Creation, opens the season every year.
    • October 4 is the feast day of St. Francis and the last day of the season of creation.

This year the theme of the Season of Creation, chosen by its international steering committee, is “The Web of Life: Biodiversity as God’s Blessing”, ​ a theme that resonates with the important and popular message of Pope Francis that ​everything is connected​.

There are educational materials available. Attached to this mail, you will find already some proposals for prayer. In the coming weeks, you will receive further information on possible activities. If you already want to know more, please consult the following page:
