‘Season of Creation’ begins

The ‘Season of Creation’ is kept from September 1st (World Day of Prayer for Creation) to October 4th (the feast of St. Francis of Assisi).

In Ireland this year, the theme is “Cultivating Hope”.

During this season we are asked to join together to celebrate and protect our common home through prayer, reflection and action.

Pope Francis has declared this year a special anniversary year for ‘Laudato Si’ (the encyclical letter he wrote in 2015 on care for the earth) and has called each of us to listen to the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor.

The Season of Creation is a special time where we can reflect on how best to answer this call and encourage our parish communities to do the same.

Trócaire provides us with material which we can use to reflect, pray and act. Click this link to go to the resources page.
