Catholic Environmental Education

Throughout his encyclical on the environment (Laudato Si), Pope Francis calls for an expanded moral code that includes environmental justice. For that, the Holy Father says, we need education: “scientific information, consciousness-raising and the prevention of environmental risks.” To get us started, Bishop Donald Bolen, chair of Justice and Peace, Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops, helped prepare Cultivating and Caring for Creation.

A Gift to the Church

From CCCB: “Practice of Indigenous spirituality is synonymous with being a good person. A moral life where one develops sound character is arrived at through a lifestyle that includes ongoing ceremonial practices from childhood through to old age. Similarly, in Catholic teaching, one lives a moral life through an ongoing lifelong experience of a faith tradition in a loving relationship with God.”
