2019 Season of Creation

September 1st - October 6th

 

Beginning on Sunday, September 1st and continuing until Sunday, October 6th, St. Ignatius will join Christians throughout the world in celebrating the “Season of Creation”.  This annual celebration of prayer and action provides an opportunity for all of us to raise our consciousness about the need to protect God’s beautiful and grace-filled creation. It is a time, for us Catholics, to encourage one another to find additional ways to engage in personal and collective action to put Pope Francis’s 2015 encyclical Laudato Si, into practice.
