As a Catholic Steward I am always searching out other Catholics who are doing great things in stewardship of the earth and its creatures. One such group is SEASON OF CREATION.

The Season of Creation spans five weeks between the
World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation (September 1) and the Feast Day of St. Francis of Assisi (October 4). This “time for creation” offers, in the words of Pope Francis, “individual believers and communities a fitting opportunity to reaffirm their personal vocation to be stewards of creation, to thank God for the wonderful handiwork which 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.”

(Pope Francis, “Letter of His Holiness Pope Francis For the Establishment of the ‘World
Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation,” September 1, 2015.)
