Pope Francis' call to an Integral Ecology

Our parish joins the Jesuits worldwide in confronting the degradation of our environment and living conditions, especially effecting the poor. The Care for Creation committee invites you to a journey that fosters a spiritual and practical response to our connection to God's creation.

In his encyclical Laudato Si’, Pope Francis discusses the degradation of the environment, its connection to other moral crises, and our contemplative response as an Integral Ecology.  He asks, “What kind of world do we want to leave those who come after us, to children who are now growing up?”
