The Season of Creation 1 Sept-4 Oct 2018
The Season of Creation is an annual celebration of prayer and action to protect creation across the globe. The season begins 1 September, the Day of Prayer for Creation, and runs through to 4 October, the Feast of St Francis of Assisi, who is the patron saint of ecology in several religious traditions. The theme of this year’s celebration is ‘walking together” and will be celebrated by Christian and other faith traditions as brothers and sisters on a pilgrimage of shared reflection and action to better care of creation.
