The Season of Creation is a global, ecumenical celebration held annually from September 1, the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation, through October 4, the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, recognized by many denominations as the patron saint of ecology.
Christians come together during this season to renew their commitment to their Creator and God’s creation through prayer, action, and celebration. This year’s theme, “Let Justice and Peace Flow,” is taken from Amos 5:24: “Let justice roll like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream.”
