World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation



Thursday, September 1 is the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation, an observance started by Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, recently adopted by the Roman Catholic Church, and growing in popularity among other Christian communities.

You are invited to visit Creation Justice Ministries website to find tools to observe this day of prayer and to celebrate the entire Season of Creation, which runs from September 1 through October 4 (the date some Christians observe the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi.)

“Creation Justice Ministries educates, equips and mobilizes Christian communions/denominations, congregations and individuals to protect, restore, and rightly share God’s Creation. Based on the priorities of its members, with a particular concern for the vulnerable and marginalized, Creation Justice Ministries provides collaborative opportunities to build ecumenical community, guides people of faith and faith communities towards eco-justice transformations, and raises a collective witness in the public arena echoing Christ’s call for just relationships among all of Creation.” Though their ministry is explicitly Christian, they are not exclusively Christian and welcome partnership and collaboration with those feel called to care of God’s Creation regardless of religious affiliation.

If you are on social media, please spread the word on Facebook and TwitterThursday, check #CareofCreation and #SeasonofCreation to see photos and videos of prayers from across the globe.
