Season of Creation begins today (Thursday 1 September) with World Day of Prayer for Creation.

This year's theme is Listen to the Voice of Creation and Pope Francis has called it "a season of increased prayer and effort on behalf of our common home".

The Season of Creation ends on 4 October, the Feast of St Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of ecology.

Archbishop Cushley said: “As Christians we give thanks to God for his great gifts and recognise our modest place in all of creation and the responsibility of being stewards of all that has been entrusted to us.

"As we join the Holy Father in the Season of Creation 2022, let’s give thanks for all God’s blessings and let’s take up our duties to our world and to each other, to the glory of God the creator.”
