The Season of Creation is the annual Christian celebration of prayer and action for our common home. Together, the ecumenical family around the world unites to pray, protect, and advocate for God’s creation.
During the 2021 Season of Creation, from 1 September through 4 October, hundreds of thousands of Christians will be uniting around the theme, “A home for all? Renewing the Oikos of God.”
This year the Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle, is partnering with Season of Creation to help raise awareness of the urgent need to care for the earth and for one another.
