International Day of Creation Care
September 1 is International Day of Creation Care, when people of faith pray and care for creation, together.
September 1 was proclaimed as the World Day of Prayer for Creation by the Orthodox Church in 1989, and many others have joined since then, with Pope Francis most recently in 2015. It was then extended to a month-long Season of Creation, ending on October 4 (Feast of St. Francis). Please remember the planet in your prayers and meditations on September 1 and every day.
