World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation Dicasterium ad integram humanam progressionem fovendam prayer service in English – guida per la preghiera in Italiano
This celebration is from September 1, the world day of prayer for the care of creation to October 4th, the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron of ecology.
The season of creation is an ecumenical event. September 1 was celebrated as World Day of Prayer for Creation by the Orthodox church since 1989; other European churches joint this in 2001.
Pope Francis established Season of Creation in the Catholic church by his letter dated August 6, 2015. His letter can be accessed in here.
In 2016 the World Council of Churches, the Anglicans and several other Christian agencies adopted this celebration. So we are called to celebrate it ecumenically.
The aims of this celebration are: • repentance from the sinful consumeristic ways of life, • adopting low greenhouse gas emission life style • and advocating to others to be stewards of the creation.
