World Day of Prayer  for the Care of Creation

Pope Francis has designated  September 1st as the annual World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation. He hopes this day will be a time for individuals and communities to “reaffirm their personal vocation to be stewards of creation, to thank God for the wonderful handiwork which he has entrusted to our care, and to implore his help for the protection of creation as well as his pardon for the sins committed against the world in which we live.”

To celebrate this auspicious new day in our calendar year,  we have partnered with the Franciscans (OFMs) to develop a beautiful downloadable prayer resource, featuring a prayer for creation from Laudato si’. We hope that you will find it a useful resource for World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation.
