The LWF opens the Ecumenical Season of Creation with an online global prayer

This year’s Season of Creation theme is "A Home for All? Renewing the oikos of God". Oikos is a Greek word for the Earth community. It is an invitation to be united in our human vocation to reshape just and sustainable political, social and economic systems that respect the life-giving ecological limits of the Earth. This year’s ecumenical prayer centers the voices of Indigenous Christians, and is led by leaders and representatives from the global ecumenical family.

The ecumenical Season of Creation lasts from 1 September (Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation) until 4 October (Feast day of St. Francis). This is an invitation to engage in a month of prayer, symbolic acts and campaigns to give thanks for creation and renew our human vocation to care for it.
