Creation CareOur Vision

Creation Care was formed to raise the awareness of MPB parishioners:

  • That our love to our Creator and our communion with Creation are essential parts of our faith.
  • That we cannot interfere in one area of the ecosystem without paying due attention to both the consequences of such interference in other areas and to the well-being of future generations.
  • That it is manifestly unjust that we, a privileged few, should accumulate excess goods, squander available resources, while masses of people are living in conditions of misery at the lowest level of subsistence.

Our Mission

Creation Care Ministry seeks: to promote the ideas of sustainability and the interdependence of all Creation; to engage our parish in reflection and to inspire action – so that we can face together the imperative environmental issues of our time.

Who are we?

We are parishioners of MPB with a variety of interests that focus on how our Catholic faith and traditions are tied to environmental, ecological and society issues within our family, community, state, nation and the world.

Monthly Tips

Creation Care Bulletin Message for April 5, 2020

Over the past few weeks we have been witnessing first hand how we are all connected. How is it possible that an open-air food market in China could affect the health of the entire world? Is COVID19 and climate change connected? While not directly connected, climate scientists have been warning us that, “Climate change carries a threat to human health and health care systems in the coming decades.” (The American Thoracic Society).

This outbreak and how we manage it does provide lessons for how we ought to prepare for and manage any potential increase in infectious diseases that scientists predict will come with the extreme weather events, droughts and other environmental ecosystem changes brought on by climate change.

What actions can we take to reduce global warming and make a positive impact on our common home? Suggestions: become informed, take individual and community action. For more information, see EarthBeat, published by the National Catholic Register. https://tinyurl.com/ncronline
