About the Season of Creation

The Season of Creation is an annual celebration of prayer and action to protect creation. It runs from September 1 to October 4. it is celebrated by Christians of all traditions, and the leaders of faith traditions have encouraged the faithful to participate.

The theme for this year’s celebration is “walking together.” As brothers and sisters in Christ, we are on a pilgrimage to better care of creation.

The Season of Creation is celebrated each year by tens of thousands of Christians around the world. Local, volunteer event hosts on six continents organize celebrations in their communities. These range from prayer services to litter clean-ups to advocacy actions. More information about how to celebrate is here.
