Season of Creation 2020

This is what a Spirit-filled movement looks like: 

  • Thousands of Catholics uniting with the global Christian family
  • More than 1,300 hope-providing events around the world
  • 243 Catholic partners leading their communities
  • 1 inspirational Pope Francis showing the way

Thank you. During the Season of Creation, you and thousands of your Catholic sisters and brothers provided hope and inspiration to the world’s 2.4 billion Christians. Thank you.

Catholics everywhere united to pray and reflect on the season on Sunday, the feast day of St Francis of Assisi. But this is hardly the end. Below you’ll find videos and stories that inspire and show how Catholics on six continents have committed to radically new ways of living with creation.

We all realise that this call is for now, as we pause at the crossroad created by the Coronavirus pandemic and the Ecological Crisis.  There is no time to lose.  We need to have loud voices that become one strong irresistible voice sharing this message now. 

Grateful thanks to all of you who are part of making this Season of Creation such a success.
