Preparing for a Season of Creation (Sept. 1 – Oct. 4, 2024)

The Season of Creation is marked by Christians around the world from September 1 (the World Day of Prayer for Creation) through October 4 (Feast Day of St. Francis). During this special season, churches preach, pray, and teach about God’s love for the whole Creation and the need for urgent action to heal the world that God made, addressing such issues as climate change, environmental stewardship, and biodiversity. This year’s theme is “To hope and act with Creation.”
