We invite you to use this rosary in your parish or community to celebrate the Season of Creation, an ecumenical season dedicated to prayer for the protection of creation and the promotion of sustainable lifestyles. It runs from 1 September to 4 October (the feast of St Francis of Assisi).

Pope Francis calls us all to celebrate this moment to “reaffirm [our] personal vocation to be stewards of creation, to thank God for the wonderful handiwork that he has entrusted to our care, and to implore his help for the protection of creation, as well as his pardon for the sins committed against the world in which we live.”
