World Day of Prayer for Creation bulletin

Grace will be the site of a “World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation” prayer service this Friday, September 1 at 5:00 p.m. The worship service will be outdoors in the church courtyard if weather permits; otherwise, we will gather in the sanctuary.

This will kick off Grace church’s celebration of Season of Creation September 1 through October 4.
The World Day of Prayer for Care of Creation started among the Orthodox Christian community in 1989 with the leadership of Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, “the Green Patriarch.” September 1 is the beginning of the Orthodox liturgical year.

In 2015, Pope Francis announced that the Roman Catholic Church would join the Orthodox Church in celebrating this World Day of Prayer, a move that was quickly followed by the National Council of Churches USA.
