Season of Creation
2021 Theme “A home for all? Renewing the Oikos of God”
The Season of Creation is a time to renew our relationship with our Creator and all creation through celebration, conversion, and commitment. It is an annual ecumenical season where we pray and act together as a Christian family for our common home. Our poster about the dates, times and subjects can be found here on our website.

DESIGNATED GIVINGS # 215 for the month of September will be in support of our 6 foster children in Latin America, including a new child in Chile. All 6 are fully sponsored by St. Paul’s, but as Gail Payne tells us in her outreach column in the June Grapevine, foster children donations have recently fallen short of our commitment. So yes, we know what we have to do.

What a wonderful idea, that we will eventually have events again! We are hoping that we can start having in person services again and having our fun fundraising get-togethers. Here are a few things to plan for if pandemic regulations allow.
- The Season of Creation: September 1 – October 4
The Season of Creation is the annual Christian celebration of
prayer and action for our common home. The season begins on Sept 1, the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation and ends October 4, the Feast of St Francis of Assisi. Although observance of the season began in 1989 in the Eastern Orthodox Church, it has grown into a world-wide observance and has been adopted by the Roman Catholic Church, the World Council of Churches and most recently by the Anglican Church of Canada in a resolution passed by General Synod in 2019. A growing number of parishes in our diocese are now observing the Season of Creation, and St Paul’s will be joining them this year. More information to come, but in the meantime mark your calendars for Monday, October 4th when we will have a Blessing of the Pets in the courtyard.
