Care for Creation

Excluding No Creature from the Shelter of Compassion

Watch Catholic Relief Services video on Caring for all of God’s Creation 

Franciscans acknowledge that all creation emanates from the goodness of God and exists exactly as it is intended to be — a “footprint” of God. This worldview embraces all creatures, plants and minerals as our brothers and sisters. In solidarity, we are called to be in right relationship with creation and be mindful of our human impact.

Care for Creation

The Care for Creation Ministry studies and recommends methods of change to improve environmental stewardship here at the Casa and elsewhere. This includes energy efficiency, renewable energy forms, recycling and more.
