Season of Creation
A home for all? Renewing the Oikos of God
1st September (Day of Prayer for Creation) to 4th October 2021 (Feast Day of St Francis of Assisi)
Pope Francis states that the Season of Creation is a “season of increased prayer and effort on behalf of our common home.” Below are some resources to support Catholic communities in celebrating this important time in communion with our Christian brothers and sisters.
Season of Creation: Daily Habits for a Healthy Planet
In a time of quarantine, digital learning, racial injustice, intensifying storms, and mass migration, holding space to act on climate change can feel overwhelming. This Season of Creation, start simple with one new daily habit for a healthy planet. Step one: Choose ONE daily action to repeat each day throughout the 34 days that will renew your relationship with creation or that will allow you to explore a radical new way of living with creation. Habit ideas and suggestions available on the website. Step two: Take the pledge to commit to ONE action repeated daily throughout the 34 days of the Season of Creation to build a new environmental habit. Step three: Form and track your healthy habit for the planet! If desired, we will send a daily email or text message reminder to keep you motivated.

It’s almost the Season of Creation once again and we are celebrating the season with the theme “A Home for All? Renewing the oikos of God”.
The Laudato Si’ Movement in Asia Pacific celebrates the season by honoring and celebrating the contributions of those who work to restore and sustain the well-being of our common home: the Laudato Si’ Animators.
From September 1 to October 4, we will bring to you daily stories of hope and action of the Laudato Si’ animators in Asia and Oceania through a series of curated micro stories called:
Restoring Our Common Home One, Community At A Time
Stories of Hope from the Laudato Si’ Animators in Asia and Oceania
Our invitation: We invite you to share your stories with us (in 300 words or less) and inspire others to live Laudato Si’. See more details here: https://bit.ly/LSAsInspire or email me to ask questions.
Why stories? Stories connect people. Stories uplift, motivate and inspire. Stories move people to take action and make better choices. Stories influence behavior changes.
Inspire. Motivate. Share. Your story matters!
