On 14 September, the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church traditionally participates in the celebration of the World Ecological Day of the Creator. Greek Catholic churches will pray for the conservation of nature on that day. The first event as part of the celebration will be held on 12 September, which will be a symbolic art event "Paint the Planet" near the Cathedral of the Vyshhorod Mother of God (town of Vyshhorod) under the leadership of famous painters. According to the design of the organizers, Greek Catholics and all interested persons will have an opportunity to paint a large map of the Earth in gratitude to God for the creation of the world and the gift of life. The program also includes a pilgrimage to the Kyivan Archeprachy of the UGCC in Vyshhorod. "It is very important for each person to be able to review their responsibility for the life on Earth," noted Fr. Ihor Shaban, Ph.D., the head of the patriarchal Committee of UGCC for Promotion of Unity of Christians. "The Christian Churches of Europe today are very concerned over the problems of ecology. The celebration of this day coincides with the beginning of the liturgical year when the Lord created the World, filled it with life, and then entrusted it to humans to wisely govern and care for the environment," notes Fr. Ihor Shaban.
