Archdiocese of Indianapolis
Creation Care Mission, Vision and Guiding Principles *
- To encourage and foster the care for God’s creation as a way of life and a core principle of our Catholic faith, and to minimize the Archdiocese’ impact on the environment.
- We are an Archdiocese committed to the principles and values set forth in Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si’.
- Parishes, schools, agencies, and organizations exhibit a culture of sustainabilit and consider the environmental impact of their activities.
- Parishioners make good environmental choices in their homes and daily lives and understand that their choices affect the lives of others. They know the joy of living more simply and understand that creation care is a moral imperative.
- All Church operations and individual activities shall be conducted in an ethical and environmentally sustainable manner.
