World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation

Care of Creation

In 2015, Pope Francis declared September 1 as the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation.

Pope Francis says that this day offers believers the opportunity to renew their personal participation as custodians of creation. This is an opportunity for individuals, prayer groups, parishes and communities all around the world to unite in their concern and action for creation.

Listen to Pope Francis talk about this day on YouTube.

You can answer Pope Francis’ call to environmental action, by signing the Laudato Si Pledge HERE which calls you to pledge to:

  • Pray For and With Creation
  • Live More Simple
  • Advocate to Protect our Common Home

Pope Francis also published a prayer for creation in his Laudato Si’ encyclical, which can be accessed HERE and used to celebrate World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation.
