Care for Creation

“Let us be renewed by God's mercy ... and let us become agents of this mercy, channels through which God can water the earth, protect all creation and make justice and peace flourish.”

― Pope Francis

Pax Christi Care for Creation Team

We will organize, educate and advocate our community about our Creators plan to protect our
brothers and sisters as well as our planet. This challenge has a moral and ethical dimension
that can no longer be ignored.

We will promote our community on Caring for Creation with the use of the Laudato Si’ 7 step
platform. “This platform is designed to teach us a new way of living, one that is good, true and
beautiful.” LS 205

Our team meets virtually the 3rd Monday of each month at 7:00pm. Hopefully soon we will be
able to meet in person!

the shaping of the future of our planet. He is asking the church and the world to join him in
finding a new path for the future.
