The Season of Creation is an annual celebration of prayer and action to protect creation. Since its inception in 1989, Christians around the world (147 denominations and ecumenical councils) have observed this season with events on six continents ranging from prayer services to litter clean-ups to advocacy actions. The theme of this year’s celebration is “The Web of Life.” The season began on September 1, the Day of Prayer for Creation, and concludes on October 4, the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of ecology.
