1ST SEPTEMBER – 4TH OCTOBER



1st September – 4th October



Pope Francis and the Australian Bishops invite all Catholics to join the ecumenical Season of Creation. It starts 1 September (World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation) and ends 4 October (Feast Day of St Francis of Assisi). They encourage us all to make this a special time of prayer and action in caring for our common home.

Read Pope Francis’ Message for the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation 2022 or a 4 Key Points Summary.

In the Diocese of Parramatta, the Season of Creation is a great time to engage with our Diocesan Laudato Si’ Action Campaign. It was launched by Bishop Vincent Long in April this year and commits the Diocese to achieving seven Laudato Si’ Goals, which means to care more deeply for God’s creation and our sisters and brothers in need. In a video message, Bishop Vincent invited all people in the Diocese, especially all Catholic schools, parishes, families, and organisations to participate.

SEASON OF CREATION 2020 RESOURCES

During the 2020 Season of Creation, people from across the Diocese of Parramatta created a beautiful community reflection video. It is still available on The Well. Click here to watch and be inspired.

There were also submissions which couldn’t be included in the video reflection, but wonderfully represented God’s creation and the call of the moment.
