1st September: Global Day of Prayer for Creation

2015-dayofprayer-careofcreation2Pope Francis has established an annual day of global prayer for creation to be celebrated on 1 September.  
In his recent encyclical Laudato si’ (On the Care of Our Common Home) he drew attention to the urgent need for reconciliation with creation, already one of the Religious Sisters of Charity’s priorities from our 2007 and 2013 General Chapters.


Pope Francis says “The annual World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation will offer individual believers and communities a fitting opportunity 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”.
We invite you to join with us in prayer on this special day and offer some resources from the Global Catholic Climate Movement.
