Season of Creation

SoC logox150

World Christian leaders' invitation to join the Season of Creation

1 September was proclaimed a Day of Prayer for Creation by the Orthodox in 1989 and repeated by Pope Francis in 2015.  The season takes us through to the feast of St. Francis on 4 October. Christians of all denominations and locations are invited to participate in an ecumenical Season of Creation.

On 13 June 2018 a joint message was released that gives new impetus to the ecumenical season of prayer and action to protect the environment.

 “O Lord my God, you are very great! You are clothed with splendor and majesty, covering yourself with light as with a garment, stretching out the heavens like a tent.” (Psalm 104:1-2) 

The invitation is given by: 

  • Archbishop Job of Telmessos, Permanent Representative of the Ecumenical Patriarchate to the WCC, on behalf of His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew
  • Most Rev. & Rt Hon Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury
  • Cardinal Peter K.A. Turkson, Prefect, Vatican Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development
  • Dr Rev. Olav Fykse Tveit, General Secretary of World Council of Churches 
  • Rev. Dr Chris Ferguson, General Secretary, World Communion of Reformed Churches 
  • Bishop Efraim Tendero, Secretary-General of the World Evangelical Alliance 
  • Rev. Dr Martin Junge, General Secretary, Lutheran World Federation 
  • Rudelmar Bueno de Faria, General Secretary, Act Alliance 
  • Fr Heikki Huttunen, General Secretary, Conference of European Churches
