As the Laudato Si’ Anniversary Year gets underway, the Secretary of the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development urges Catholics to take part in the annual Season of Creation.

The Season of Creation is an annual ecumenical celebration of prayer and action to protect our common home.

It takes place from 1 September – the World Day of Prayer for Creation – to 4 October – the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi.

Christians of all traditions are invited to take part by organising prayer services, community litter clean-ups, or advocacy actions.

Special invitation

This year’s event takes place within the context of the special Laudato Si’ Anniversary Year, which Pope Francis opened on Sunday, 24 May. The Year coincides with the fifth anniversary of his encyclical.

The Vatican Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development launched a special invitation on Monday urging Catholics to take part in the Season of Creation.

A video was released in partnership with the Global Catholic Climate Movement.
