Liturgies for the season of Creation

What is the Season of Creation?
“Four Sundays in September, prior to St Francis of Assisi Day, we join in celebrating with creation. We celebrate Christ, the creator, and the wonders of creation...Four Sundays – four domains of creation e.g., Forest, Land, Ocean and River Sundays” 

The basic pattern for this calendar is:  

First Sunday: September 1 – Day of Creation (as in Orthodox traditions)  
Second Sunday: St Francis of Assisi Day, Blessing of the Animals  
Third or Fourth Sunday: Special Sunday – appropriate to the country or community  
Fourth Sunday: Second Sunday in October – Final Sunday of the Season
