Season of Creation 2021: The Akathist Prayer: Glory to God For All Things
[Dr. Lesya Sabada, Eparchial Human & Environmental Development Program Coordinator]
The Season of Creation is an annual celebration of prayer and action intended to increase awareness of God’s love and protection of His creation. It is celebrated by Christians of all traditions, and the leaders of various churches have encouraged the faithful to participate. The season begins on September 1, the World Day of Prayer for Creation, and runs through October 4, the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of ecology in many Western traditions. September 1 was proclaimed World Day of Prayer for Creation, or Creation Day by Ecumenical Patriarch Dimitrios I from the Orthodox in 1989 and was embraced by the other major Christian European churches in 2001 and by Pope Francis for the Roman Catholic Church in 2015 This was filmed for the Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy of Saskatoon in September 2021 at St. Athanasius Ukrainian Catholic Church in Regina, SK to enhance your celebration of the Season of Creation.
