During this season we are encouraged to pray and engage in community events in order to deepen our relationship with our God, our neighbour and the earth we share.

The Season of Creation is an annual celebration uniting Christians in prayer and action for the protection of our common home. The idea of celebrating 1 September as a day of prayer for creation began at the wish of the Ecumenical Patriarch Dimitrios in 1989, and was endorsed by Pope Francis in 2015. The season runs from September 1 to October 4, the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi.

Below you can find PowerPoint presentations done by our Schools and Colleges department for your use. They are accompanied by a PDF document explaining the presentation. Just click the image and the PowerPoint presentation will open.

Stations of Creation for Reception

Stations of Creation for Reception and Year 1

This reflection is to celebrate the Season of Creation and the 5th anniversary of Laudato Si. For Reception and Year 1 I have used an adapted version of Saint Francis’ ‘Canticle of the Creatures’. I hope the words of Saint Francis will help the children appreciate the wonders of God’s creation.

This reflection is based on the Stations of Creation which were inspired by the ‘Canticle of the Creatures’ by Saint Francis. There is a collective worship and a creation walk for you to do. I hope the children enjoy the wonders of God’s creation.
