Season of Creation
September 1, 2017 - October 4, 2017
Christians prayer and care for creation, together.
The Orthodox Church proclaimed September 1 World Day of Prayer for Creation in 1989. Since then many other Christian churches have joined them. Pope Francis added the Roman Catholic church in 2015. It was then extended to be a month-long Season of Creation, ending on October 4 (Feast of St. Francis).
