Creation Care Ministry

About

The Creation Care Ministry realizes and affirms that care for the earth, our common home, is an obligation of our Catholic faith. We are called to be careful stewards of God’s creation and to ensure a safe and hospitable environment for all human beings now and for generations to come.

Our mission is twofold: To create a deeper awareness of environmental stewardship in the parish and its extended family; To encourage good stewardship practices at home, at work, in our parish and in the community.

We meet monthly and welcome anyone interested in working to incorporate Creation Care into their own lives and to help the parish and community grow in this responsibility. Your special interests are welcome and can make a difference in this ministry’s broad range of current and potential projects.

For more information or to join us, please contact Kim Young at KYoungDT@msn.com.

A Prayer for Our Earth

All-powerful God,
You are present in the whole universe
And in the smallest of the creatures.
You embrace with your tenderness all that exists.
Pour out upon us the power of your love,
That we may protect life and beauty.
Fill us with peace, that we may live
As brothers and sisters, harming no one.
O God of the poor,
Help us to rescue the abandoned
And forgotten of this earth,
So precious in your eyes.
Bring healing to our lives,
That we may protect the world and not prey on it,
That we may sow beauty,
Not pollution and destruction.
Touch the hearts
Of those who look only for gain
At the expense of the poor and the earth.
Teach us to discover the worth of each thing,
To be filled with awe and contemplation,
To recognize that we are profoundly united
With every creature
As we journey towards your infinite light.
We thank you for being with us each day,
Encourage us, we pray, in our struggle for justice,
Love and peace.
Amen!
