earth care organization
"We are not faced with two separate crises, one environmental and one social, but one complex crisis which is both social and environmental."
ECO: Earth Care Organization
With the directive of the Pope and the blessing of our Pastor this committee has been tasked to help St. Elizabeth (Kansas City, MO) be a more eco-minded community. Through teaching and practicing ecological sustainability, encouraging bridge building to those who are negatively affected by climate change and celebrating God’s natural and social creation, we will be better stewards for our earth. This will provide our children and generations to come with a more stable, peaceful and beautiful home.
Why care for the environment?

Prayer for our world
By Stephen Davies/CAFOD
Creator God, who made our beautiful world,
appointed us as its guardians
and gifted us with everything we need,
forgive us for the times we cause it harm;
for the times our way of life
affects our neighbors.
Inspire us to care for the environment;
to help rebuild lives and communities;
to share in the griefs and anxieties,
joys and hopes of all your people,
so that all your creation may flourish.
