World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation

Pope Francis has called for the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation to take place on September 1, 2016. This day, established last year, gives us a opportunity to reflect on the world that God created for us.  Pope Francis wrote:  “The annual World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation will offer individual believers and communities a fitting opportunity to reaffirm their personal vocation to be stewards of creation, to thank God for the wonderful handiwork which he has entrusted to our care, and to implore his help for the protection of creation as well as his pardon for the sins committed against the world in which we live.”

Resources for the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation, such as special prayers, ideas for action, and discussion guides, are available on the USCCB environmental justice webpage and the We are Salt & Light Laudato Si’ webpage.
