Celebration Guide: Season of Creation 2023

Celebration Guide: Season of Creation 2023


The Season of Creation is the annual Christian celebration to pray and respond together to the cry of Creation: the ecumenical family around the world unites to listen and care for our common home, the Oikos of God.

The Season “Celebration” begins 1 September, the Day of Prayer for Creation, and ends 4 October, the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of ecology beloved by many Christian denominations.

Following the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity celebrated in the Northern Hemisphere, we began in February the Season of Creation “Preparation” to reach local leaders and call our communities to participate actively by raising awareness of the theme, and how to respond to the cry of creation where the Lord calls us in our diverse contexts.


The stage of “Preparation” is key to prepare together for the Season of Creation, creating bonds and relationships as the People of God caring for our common home.


This year we will unite around the theme “Let Justice and Peace Flow” with the symbol of A Mighty River.


Through prayer, practical advocacy, and sustainable actions, this 2023 Season of Creation can prophetically renew our ecumenical unity and care for our common home.
