World Day of Prayer and Season of Creation

In 1989, Ecumenical Patriarch Dimitrios I proclaimed September 1 as a day of prayer for creation (Creation Day) which was embraced by the other major Christian European churches in 2001 and by Pope Francis for the Roman Catholic Church in 2015. Many Christian churches have started celebrating the “Season of Creation” (also known as Creation Time) between that date and October 4, the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, Patron Saint of Ecology.

As a step in the efforts to answer these and other community directives, the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia, members of the Franciscan Action Network, have compiled this list of online resources for use during the Season of Creation month. We invite you to look through them and adapt as necessary.
