Catholic social teaching has long emphasized the need to “Care for God’s Creation” as a
central aspect of stewardship and a shared responsibility for all to consider.

This theme has been highlighted and emphasized by Pope Francis in his recent
encyclical, Laudato Si, in which he provides us with a number of perspectives on our
relationship with the environment as Christians and Catholics.

To aid us in understanding our obligation to protect and maintain our environment, this
lecture and discussion will explore the foundational teachings as well as contemporary
documents that shape our common responsibility.
