Each year, from September 1 until October 4, the Season of Creation is commemorated by Christians around the world. This year’s theme is “Let justice and peace flow,” and the symbol is the mighty river.
Our friends at the Laudato Si’ Movement have prepared dozens of resources for communities and individuals to use to participate in this year’s Season of Creation.
The fifth edition of the Season of Creation’s Catholic liturgical guide is now available. Let Justice and Peace Flow, a Catholic Liturgical Guide for the 2023 Season of Creation, was prepared by long-time Pax Christi USA member and former National Council member Rev. Jim Hug, SJ, in partnership with Marie Dennis, Pax Christi USA’s 2022 Teacher of Peace and program chair of Pax Christi International’s Catholic Nonviolence Initiative.
And for university students:
Register now for a special five-week course offered by Pax Christi USA, the Catholic Nonviolence Initiative, and Casa Esther Catholic Worker on the connections between nonviolence and care of creation. The course will be offered every Monday in October.
>> If you are not a student, you can still register to receive a link to watch the video of the class after the class has been offered. Use the link above (or click on the poster) to register and choose the option for “general public.”
Join Pax Christi USA, Catholic Climate Covenant, Laudato Sí Movement, and the Ignatian Solidarity Network as we explore the interconnections between gospel nonviolence and care for creation in “Living the Season of Creation Nonviolently.”
During this five-week program, learn about the vow of nonviolence and how it can radically transform our way of living as stewards on earth. Receive a weekly email with opportunities to learn, pray, and practice nonviolence. Join us online for reflection sessions and an opportunity to make the vow of nonviolence in community.
