Care of Creation
One Complex Crisis
“We are not faced with two separate crises, one environmental and one social, but rather one complex crisis which is both social and environmental” Pope Francis, Laudato Si
Climate change is the biggest challenge facing the world today with the poorest communities hardest hit. Inspired by Pope Francis Jesuit Missions prioritises Care of Creation throughout our work.
Care of Creation around the world
Across the world Jesuit Missions works with those people who are most affected by climate change. In Kerala, South India, we work with a research institute to improve early weather warning systems for the local fishermen. We work with local people in the Philippines to decrease their vulnerability to typhoons. Our partners In Kenya use street theatre group to share the message of Laudato Si so that more people are aware of climate issues.
Pope Francis calls us to action to defend the dignity of our common home and to promote an ecology that works for all creation.
Jesuit schools and parishes in the UK work with Jesuit Missions to show their care of creation and you can find out more by visiting our school pages.
