St. Peter Care for Creation Initiative

As a team, the Care of Creation ministry at St Peter's Parish prioritizes imbuing care for creation throughout all parish activities. As such, we focus on partnering with other St. Peter ministries and with outside organizations and non-profits to share the message of Laudato Si and encourage all to consider how they can care for God’s creation.

History of Creation Care within Catholic Social Teaching

In a retreat offered by Sisters of Mercy (Belmont, NC), I designed a history timeline of Catholic Social Teaching to show how creation care has always been a part of CST. Click below for the Timeline graphic as well as the slides from the retreat. A great article for more information on this rich history of ecological awareness in CST is offered in Celia Deane-Drummond's article "Joining in the Dance: Catholic Social Teaching and Ecology" published in the New Blackfriars journal in 2012.
