In 2015 Pope Francis joined the leaders of other Christian churches in declaring September 1st to be a World Day of Prayer for Creation, and as you can see in the above video, he is asking people all around the world to pray for creation on this day.
The World Day of Prayer for Creation is also the first day of the “Season of Creation,” a time for all Christians to celebrate, pray, and take action for our common home. The Season of Creation runs from 1st September until 4th October 2016, the Feast Day of St Francis of Assisi.
To find out more about what the Season of Creation is, and how you and your parish can celebrate it, head to the website: www.seasonofcreation.org. You’ll find liturgical resources, guides for planning prayer services, suggestions on how to take action on Laudato Si during the Season of Creation (and beyond) and more.
The World Day of Prayer for Creation has a Facebook event, so head to the event page and let your friends and family know that you will be praying for creation on the 1st September.
