The Season of Creation –Sunday, September 1 through Thursday, October 4 – is a special, optional season for Christians worldwide. This season gives Christians the invitation to deepen our relationship to God, our Creator, and to appreciate and find ways to protect God’s creation.

Upcoming Season of Creation events at the Motherhouse are as follows.
