Care for Creation

God then took the man and settled him in the garden of Eden, to cultivate and care for it

The natural environment is a gift from God. Across the state, it offers notable beauty and provides necessary resources for Michigan communities. Enjoying these resources, however, also comes with a responsibility to cultivate and care for the Earth. Because those in poverty are disproportionately impacted by pollution and waste, public policies are enhanced when the health of the environment and the health of individuals are discussed. With these considerations in mind, MCC supports:

  • Engaging in policies that reflect Catholic Social Doctrine on the environment in state policy, including access to safe and affordable drinking water and the responsible stewardship of natural resources.

“The future of the human family depends also on how we safeguard the gift of creation that our Creator has entrusted to us.” — Pope Francis
