“Contemplation of creation allows us to discover in each thing, a teaching which God wishes to hand on to us, since ‘for the believer, to contemplate creation, is to hear a message, to listen to a paradoxical and silent voice’” (LS 85).
The season started on 1 September with a 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. This year’s theme is Let Just and Peace Flow. The ecumenical global resource for this Season can be downloaded here.

“Future generations will never forgive us if we miss the opportunity to protect our common home. We have inherited a garden; we must not leave a desert for our children.”
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.
