St Paul’s Cathedral in the Episcopal Diocese of San Diego, along with church communities throughout the world, will celebrate a Season of Creation from September 5 through October 3, 2021. Through worship, education, and action we will ignite our commitment to act with a grounding in the wonder of God’s creation in this critical climate emergency.
With our church colleagues in the Diocese we invite our congregations to increase efforts to mitigate the harm of climate change, especially to vulnerable communities who are primarily the poor and people of color; our future generations; and all creatures of our common home.
