Overview

Trócaire works with parishes and communities across the island of Ireland to educate, inspire and motivate people to take action for global justice.

Please see in the section below our resources and information for The Season of Creation which runs from September 1st (World Day of Prayer for Creation) to October 4th (the feast of St. Francis of Assisi)

We are supported in this work by Bishops, priests, pastoral workers and parishioners in every diocese.

On his visit to Ireland in August 2018, Pope Francis spoke of the need to “forge a future of freedom and dignity, justice and solidarity”.

Trócaire produces a range of resources for use in your parish or community group. We also visit parishes to deliver workshops and talks. We help people to explore the connection between their faith and taking action for justice.

If you need one of our resources from a previous year, please contact our church officer, Colm Hogan at [email protected]

Season of Creation

The Season of Creation runs from September 1st (World Day of Prayer for Creation) to October 4th (the feast of St. Francis of Assisi). Amid numerous crises which have shaken our world, the theme this year is “Restoring Our Common Home”. During this season we are asked to join together to celebrate creation and protect our common home through prayer, reflection and action.

This year we celebrate this season mindful of the fact that our world continues to deal with the COVID-19 crisis as well as a devastating climate and biodiversity crisis. We look towards two UN Conferences in the Autumn, COP15 (on Biodiversity, due to take place in China) and COP24 (on climate change, Glasgow) in the hope that world leaders take the urgent action that is needed to Restore Our Common Home. We urge people to sign the “Healthy Planet Healthy People” petition as a key action for this Season of Creation.

The global Christian family is called to awaken to the urgent need to heal our relationships with creation and with each other during the ecumenical Season of Creation and to encourage our parish communities to do the same. We hope that these resources will help you.

“For we know that things can change!” (LS, 13).
