“The heavens declare the glory of God; the firmament proclaims the works of his hands. Day unto day pours forth speech; night unto night whispers knowledge.” (Ps 19:1-3)

 

Mission Statement:

The St. Vincent de Paul Church Care & Justice for Creation Ministry, guided by scripture and the Catholic Tradition, seeks to listen to and answer the cry of Creation by engaging our community in nature-nourishing, sustainable practices and environmental advocacy. We work to foster our communal “ecological conversion” through prayer, practice, and learning.

 

“Living our vocation to be protectors of God’s handiwork is essential to a life of virtue; it is not an optional or a secondary aspect of our Christian experience.” (Pope Francis, Laudato Si’)

 

Some key values:

● All life is sacred and deserves its inherent dignity to be cultivated and respected.
● Per scripture, humanity has a special responsibility to care for Creation.
● Human flourishing is bound up in the flourishing of Creation.
● The Vincentian call to care for the poor requires a commitment to protect vulnerable ecosystems and the vulnerable human populations, disproportionately black and brown, who also depend on them.

 

“We have all been called by God to work on a masterpiece.” (St Vincent de Paul)
