Take Action for Creation on September 1 

Dear Columban Advocates,

Join us for a special global day of prayer for creation! Pope Francis has declared September 1 to be the World Day of Prayer for Care for Creation.  He is doing his part to respond to the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor. Will you join us?

It starts with prayer.  As a community, make use of the Columban Season of Creation prayer resource. There’s a prayer and worship guide for each Sunday in September. As an individual, we offer this prayer from Laudato Si’.

Prayer for the Earth

Let us each do a part. Sign up for one hour of prayer on September 1. The Global Catholic Climate Movement  has created a prayer sign-up list that will go live on September 1. This allows people around the world to sign up for an hour of prayer for creation, especially for our world leaders to turn Pope Francis’ teaching into action when they gather in Paris for the U.N. Climate Talks in December.

In solidarity,
Columban Center for Advocacy and Outreach
