Creation Season 2011 for use during Easter Season or at a time convenient for your congregation (Easter 2 through Easter 7, Year A)

Welcome! We're glad you're planning on observing a liturgical season of creation. We have prepared some materials for you to use in worship and in teaching.

Congregations report that they celebrate creation at various different times in the year. This year we have created a creation season of six themes that are not tightly tied to the lectionary. It is suitable for use during Easter Season, but may also be used at another time or in smaller units.

For each Sunday theme there are prayers and other liturgical materials, as well as information for homilists (preachers) and religious education ideas.

You may go to the full schedule of materials or click on the links below for the Sunday you desire:

Please note that these pages will be added during the month of April 2011. Some links may not work until later in the month.


  • Being an all volunteer group, we haven't been able to provide complete off the shelf curriculum. But we trust that with some ideas for seeds and your own creativity, you'll be able plan a wonderful study.
  • The MEESC has prepared materials for use in the Episcopal Diocese of Minnesota for Creation Season 2011. You may need to obtain permission from your diocese or other judicatory before using these materials in your congregation.

As a reminder, if you do reproduce information for use in your parishes, please follow the notation requirements on use of our materials.
