This year, the theme of the season is “A Home for All? Renewing the Oikos of God.” In Genesis God set a dome over the Earth. The word ”dome“ is where we get words such as ‘domicile’ and ’domestic’ — in other words, God puts us all is — all people, all life — under the same domed roof — we are all in the house, the oikos of God. God gave humans the ministry to take care and cultivate this oikos of God. (From the Season of Creation 2021 Celebration Guide)
The Season runs through October 4th, the Solemnity of our Seraphic Father Francis. It is a time when we honor and celebrate God’s awesome creation and everything it contains.
