World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation


The World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation (September 1) was instituted by the Orthodox Church in 1989. Since then, many other Christian Churches have joined the celebration, including the Catholic Church in the wake of Pope Francis’ Encyclical Letter Laudato Si’ on the care of our common home.

The protection and safeguarding of the environment, the care and attention given to all people and to the environment which they inhabit, with particular regard to the poor and marginalized members of society, will be the central theme of the various initiatives and joint prayer meetings that will take place in different countries.
