Pope Francis has designated September 1 as the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation.

Join Pope Francis and Christians around the globe in praying for and taking action for our common home on September 1 and the Season of Creation, September 1­ – October 4

From SeasonofCreation.org:

The Season of Creation is celebrated annually by tens of thousands of Christians around the world. During the Season of Creation, we pray and act to protect God’s creation.

 

Did you know? Here are five things we can do every day to care for our common home:

  1.  Use reusable bags for shopping
  2. Turn off your car if sitting for more than 10 seconds
  3. Take a shorter shower
  4. Bring your own coffee mug and water bottle 
  5. Buy from local farms and food producers, where possible
