Season of Creation: Sept. 1 to Oct. 4 we pray and act together for Creation
From September 1 to October 4, Christians around the world are praying and caring for creation. It’s the “Season of Creation” celebrated by Christian churches around the globe.
From Miami to Manila, we’re uniting with one purpose: to steward the Earth. We’re sharing our stories with each other and with the world.

This year Christian communities will be engaging in symbolic actions in front of coal mines, fracking wells, and other sites of ecological destruction.
Christians are coming together to pray and care for creation in all corners of the globe. See pictures from Season of Creation 2017:
September 1 was proclaimed as the World Day of Prayer for Creation by the Orthodox Church in 1989, and many other Christian churches have joined since then, with Pope Francis most recently in 2015. It was then extended to be a month-long Season of Creation, ending on October 4 (Feast of St. Francis).
