“In this Season of Creation, as followers of Christ on our shared synodal journey, let us live, work and pray that our common home will teem with life once again.”
Message of Pope Francis for
the Day of Creation 2023
and Peace Flow
From September 1 – October 4, the Christian family unites worldwide in prayer and action for creation during the Season of Creation. The 2023 theme is “Let Justice and Peace Flow.” The symbol is the mighty river.
Celebrate this year’s Season by incorporating the theme and symbol in Sunday liturgies or in a communal prayer service. An ecumenical prayer service template and other ideas for celebrating the season are available below.

The climate crisis is growing. We need those who have the power to act justly. Pray with us for climate justice and take action by sharing your prayers with political leaders.
All month long we will be posting on social media how we are praying for ecological justice, particularly in areas impacted by climate change. Together we can unleash a mighty river of peace and justice on behalf of all Creation.

Your story matters. We will be gathering your stories of Season of Creation action and sharing them with the Vatican. Like individual tributaries coming together to form a mighty river, our collective action will form an unstoppable movement for ecological justice.
Empowered by The Letter
Empowered by the voices that witness injustice in the film The Letter, let us respond with our own “Letter” for creation during this Season. Let us strengthen our ecumenical efforts for bold and prophetic action to care for our common home.
We hope you will follow in Catholic tradition and give as regularly and as generously as you can. If you choose to give and pledge to give monthly to LSM, you will be a member of LSMs (new!) Monthly Sustainer Program. We are building a transformative global movement to care for our common home.
