“Can we remain indifferent before the problems associated with such realities as climate change, desertification, the deterioration and loss of productivity in vast agricultural areas, the pollution of rivers and aquifers, the loss of biodiversity, the increase of natural catastrophes and the deforestation of equatorial and tropical regions?
… All these are issues with a profound impact on the exercise of human rights, such as the right to life, food, health, and development.” Pope Benedict XVI, Message for World Day of Peace 2010

Our Ministry Vision and Mission: Inspired by St. Francis and based on the teachings of Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si’, we have been called to action by our Holy Father to answer “the cry of the Earth and the cry of the Poor” by becoming stewards of our common home. As stewards, we strive to protect our planet and live in harmony with God’s creation by educating and motivating our parish community to act toward a sustainable future. Our Ministry Goals: Educate Ourselves, Invite Others, Protect People and the Planet.
