Sowing Hope for the Planet August 2023

Dear Participants in Sowing Hope for the Planet,

Season of Creation 2023

“Future generations will never forgive us if we miss the opportunity to protect our common home. We have inherited a garden; we must not leave a desert for our children.” Joint statement from Pope Francis, the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew and Archbishop Justin Welby of Canterbury.

We would like to tell you about upcoming events for the Season of Creation. Starting with Creation Day, on Friday, 1 September, the Season of Creation will begin. This year’s theme will be “Let Justice and Peace Flow”.

Faith leaders from around the world will lead us in prayer and reflection as we begin this important time of reflection, faith, and action. The broadcast will be live on the Laudato Si’ Movement’s YouTube channel at this link.

For more information, please download the Celebration Guide here.

On the Season of Creation website, you can join a mailing list, find promotional materials, liturgical resources, advocacy materials, and activities for individuals and churches to help with your own celebrations for the Season of Creation.

God bless you all and we look forward to sharing this marvelous time with you!
