Promotes ecological responsibility

The Creation Sustainability ministry helps parishioners become more aware of how our “footprint” impacts our Earth and how they can practice ecological responsibility. Members of the ministry keep parishioners apprised of and urge support for critical legislation that advances environmental ideals. Each April, the ministry participates in the annual celebration of Earth Day, a global event dedicated to raising awareness of environmental causes and protecting the planet’s natural resources. From September 1 through October 4 (Feast of St. Francis of Assisi), the ministry celebrates the Season of Creation, during which various Christian Churches unite in showing mercy to the earth as our common home and cherishing the world in which we live as a place for sharing and communion. The churches organize and support hundreds of events and prayer services worldwide by collaborating through the ecumenical website seasonofcreation.org.
