The Season of Creation
has a special significance for the Catholic Church.

The Season of Creation or Creation Time, is marked throughout the Christian world from 1 September to 4 October (Feast of Saint Francis of Assisi) and celebrates the joy of creation as well as encouraging awareness-raising initiatives to protect the natural environment.

The theme for the Season of Creation 2022 is ‘Listen to the Voice of Creation’.  In this season of creation God’s spirit calls us the global Christian family to awaken to the urgent need to heal our relationships with Creation and with each other and to encourage our parish communities to do the same, “for we know that things can change”. (Laudto Si, 13).
Further information is available from:
