Season of Creation to take place during Laudato Si' Year



Source: Vatican News

As the Laudato Si' anniversary year gets underway, the Secretary of the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development is encouraging Catholics to take part in the annual Season of Creation. This annual ecumenical celebration of prayer and action to protect our common home takes place from 1 September - the World Day of Prayer for Creation - to 4 October - the Feast of St Francis of Assisi. Christians of all traditions are invited to take part by organizing prayer services, community litter clean-ups, or advocacy actions.

This year's event takes place within the context of the special Laudato Si' Anniversary Year, which Pope Francis opened on Sunday, 24 May. The Year coincides with the 5th anniversary of his encyclical.

The Vatican Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development launched a special invitation on Monday urging Catholics to take part in the Season of Creation. See the video released in partnership with the Global Catholic Climate Movement HERE.
