The Church teaches that creation is a gift from God, and that we show respect for our Creator by taking care of the environment. We also care for creation because of the relationship between the environment and our well-being, a relationship known as human ecology.
Building on a long tradition of Church teaching, Pope Francis's encyclical Laudato Si' or Praised Be explores our unique relationship with the earth, the devastating impacts of climate change on the most vulnerable, and our responsibility to protect the earth and each other.
A parish-based and religious community-based 6-week faith-sharing program designed to deepen our faith and build relationships within our Catholic community through the warm invitation of Pope Francis.
