World Environment Day
Season of Creation
1 September to 4 October, every year
In 2017, the Mercy Ministry Formation Network asked a small group of members to adapt the Season of Creation Sunday Liturgies to be more inclusive in language and meaning. Based on the original work of Norman Habel (and adapted with permission) these rituals are now listed here for 2018 (series B).
September 2 1st Sunday in Creation – Planet Earth Sunday
September 9 2nd Sunday in Creation – Humanity Sunday
September 16 3rd Sunday in Creation – Sky Sunday
September 23 4th Sunday in Creation – Mountain Sunday
September 30 5th Sunday in Creation – Blessing of the Animals
These rituals were prepared by Sally Neaves from Rahamim, Caroline Thompson from Mercy Partners, Teresa Anderson rsm from Aotearoa NZ and Margie Abbott rsm.
