Season of Creation 2020 - Sept 1 to Oct 4

The Season of Creation is an annual ecumenical celebration of prayer and action to protect our common home. It takes place from 1 September – the World Day of Prayer for Creation – to 4 October – the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi. Christians of all traditions are invited to take part by organizing prayer services, community litter clean-ups, or advocacy actions.
