Human Dignity and Solidarity

Season of Creation


From Thursday, September 1 to Tuesday, October 4, 2022, Christians around the world will be celebrating the Season of Creation by praying and acting together to protect our common home.

This is a time to join together to live the Catholic faith and care for God’s creation. To love God, we must honor all that God has created. To love our neighbor requires us as Christians to preserve and protect all that sustains life.

The theme of this year’s Season of Creation celebration is “Listen to the Voice of Creation.” Catholics are uniting with others in the Christian family to protect every creature in God’s beautifully complex web of creation.

The burning bush is the Symbol for the Season of Creation 2022. We invite you to use the symbol during your events.
