Celebrating the Season of Creation
The Season of Creation starts on September 1, proclaimed last year by Pope Francis as World Day of Prayer for Care of Creation; originally practiced by the Orthodox Church as Day of Creation and ends on October 4, the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of the environment. “Christians or not, as people of faith and goodwill, we should be united in showing mercy to the earth as our common home and cherishing the world in which we live as a place for sharing and communion.” (Pope Francis, Message for the World Day of Prayer for Creation, September 1, 2016)
