On September 1st, 1989, His Holiness Dimitrios I, Patriarch of Constantinople,
decreed the first day of September as a day of special reverence and prayer for the
Safeguarding of Creation.

In 2015, Pope Francis announced that the Catholic Church would also mark
September 1st as the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation.

It provides an occasion for Christians from various churches around the
world to gather together in prayer for the well-being of the earth, our common home.
