The Season of Creation has a special significance for the Catholic Church, particularly since Pope Francis established 1 September as an annual World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation.
The Season of Creation or Creation Time, is marked throughout the Christian world from 1 September to 4 October (Feast of St. Francis of Assisi) and celebrates the joy of creation as well as encouraging awareness-raising initiatives to protect the natural environment.
The following resources are offered for use in dioceses, parishes and in the home, during the Season of Creation 2020. Please note that the resources will be updated regularly so do please check back in with this page from time to time.
This year’s resource pack includes podcasts, liturgical resources, a leaflet, prayers and reflections, recommended reading and information on the fifth anniversary of Laudato Si’.
The resources have been prepared by the CCO, the Laudato Si’ Working Group of the Council for Catechetics, Trócaire, the Council for Justice and Peace and the Vatican’s Dicastery for Integral Human Development. They will be added to between now and the beginning of this year’s Season of Creation on 1 September.
