Pope Francis has established 1 September as the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation, encouraging the Catholic Community around the world to pray for our common home. He calls us all to celebrate this opportune moment to ‘reaffirm our vocation’ to be stewards of creation, to thank God for the wonderful handiwork which he has entrusted to our care and to implore his help for the protection of creation, as well as His pardon for the sins committed against the world we live in.

Season of Creation begins on September 1st and runs until the 4th of October, the Feast of St Francis
