The Season of Creation is an international, ecumenical, liturgical movement inviting Christians of all backgrounds and nationalities into a month-long season of hearing the cries of creation, raising our awareness of the new thing God is doing, and advocating for policies around the world that expand environmental justice. From September 1 – October 4 (the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi), individuals, congregations and communities are invited to participate in this world-wide movement through prayer, communal worship, and action.
Begin today! Join LAMPa's statewide creation care network. Urge Congress to reform disaster response. Learn about other ways to participate with the global church as we give thanks and act for our common home.
As we enter this season, the U.S. is experiencing a year of disasters reflecting the accelerating consequences of the climate crisis, even as global leaders prepare to meet in New York for United Nations summits on climate ambition and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The 2023 report of the International Panel on Climate Change points to a path for a livable future — if we act together now. The cries are urgent, but we are called to act in hope.
