Season of Creation 2016

Each year, from 1 September, the Global Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation, to 4 October, St Francis of Assisi Day, many Anglicans use the Season of Creation – also known as  Creation Time –  to pray and celebrate with creation, focus on the story of Earth, and commit to a ministry of healing Earth.

 2016: This year ACEN is partnering the Global Catholic Climate Forum, the World Council of Churches, the ACT Alliance and GreenFaith to promote the Day of Prayer and gather resources to assist all faithful people to take part in the Season.
