It’s September and that means the Season of Creation has made its return. This year, we observe the Wisdom cycle and feature a different aspect of creation each week.
When you attend services this month be sure to take a close look at the new altar frontal, which was created by the children of St. George’s with the coaching and inspiration of Charlotte Colvin. You can see the images the children created for the various weeks of the month.
All children and young people are invited to be at church by 9:55 AM on Sunday mornings during the month of September, the Season of Creation. There will be a Children’s Procession each Sunday of this season, in which the children follow the acolytes in procession and bring objects up to the altar that connect to our theme each week, the theme for each Sunday are as follows:
- 4 – Ocean Sunday
- 11 – Storm Sunday
- 18 – Cosmos Sunday
- 25 – Animal Sunday
September 4 is Ocean Sunday to celebrate life in the seas and all our waterways. Then in the second week, we mark Storm Sunday on September 11. September 18 is Cosmos Sunday to honor the Cosmic Christ of the universe. And we end the month with September 25 and the blessing of animals on Animal Sunday.
With special regard to Animal Sunday, we are most welcome to bring four-legged friends to church for the 10:00 AM service for the Blessing of Animals. Note that it is a Sunday service this year rather than being held on Saturday. At the same time, we can also do a blessing in proxy for your animals you may choose not to bring to the service. Note: The 8:00 AM service will NOT include an animal blessing. So bring your furry creatures to the later service, only.
