“Today the great gift of God’s Creation is exposed to serious dangers and lifestyles which can degrade it. Environmental pollution is making particularly unsustainable the lives of the poor of the world … we must pledge ourselves to take care of creation and to share its resources in solidarity.”
— Pope Benedict XVI
Being responsible stewards of God’s creation is not just an Earth Day slogan; it is a requirement of our faith. In its business operations and its advocacy efforts, CCUSA lives out our call as people of faith protect those hurt by environmental neglect and to protect the planet for future generations.
In our work to end poverty, we remain mindful that the poor and marginalized in our society will suffer both the short- and long-term consequences from climate change. Therefore, we are required to stand up to protect God's creation for the present and future generations.
