Season of Creation Film Screenings

The Season of Creation is the annual Christian celebration to pray and respond together to the cry of Creation: the ecumenical family around the world unites to listen and care for our common home, the Oikos of God.  The Season “Celebration” begins September 1, the Day of Prayer for Creation, and ends October 4, the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of ecology beloved by many Christian denominations.

The local Laudato Si’ Circle will present three documentary films to help us understand the challenges we face in caring for our common home.
