  • Season of Creation 2023: The Season of Creation is marked throughout the Christian world from 1 September to 4 October (Feast of Saint Francis of Assisi) and celebrates the gift and beauty of God’s creation and encourages initiatives to protect our Common Home. This year’s theme “Let Justice and Peace Flow” is inspired by the Prophet Amos.  “Let justice roll on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream!” (Amos 5: 24). As Christians we are called to join the river of justice and peace, to take up climate and ecological justice, and to speak out with and for communities most impacted by climate injustice and the loss of biodiversity. What Can Your Parish Do? We hope that the following resources will help you and your parish community to celebrate the Season of Creation 2023  and also consider how your parish will respond to the Irish Catholic Bishops’ Conference call to take action towards returning 30% of church grounds to nature by 2030. Parishes may decide to host one or more of these actions during the Season of For further information email JPIC at  or phone Bernie McCaffrey at 087 6484367
