Season of Creation
From September 1 until October 4, the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi, the Church invites us to celebrate the Season of Creation. According to Pope Francis, this month-long ecumenical celebration is “a time for Christians worldwide to renew their faith in the God of creation and join in prayer and work for the care of our common home.” The theme for Season of Creation 2020 is "Jubilee for the Earth: New Rhythms, New Hope."
