Season of Creation
The annual Season of Creation starts on 1 September (the Day of Prayer for Creation) and runs until 4 October (the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, patron saint of ecology). Through the season, Churches and organisations around the world unite in prayer and action for our common home. Read more about the Season of Creation HERE.
