Creation Care


“God so loved the world that he gave his only son …” is not a pious platitude or a simple religious refrain. It is a declaration of God’s purpose and mission in the world from the beginning to this very day. “God so loved the world.” That’s not just about us who are human. It’s about the whole of God’s grand and glorious Creation.

Presiding Bishop Michael Curry

Here at St. Mary’s, we take seriously our calling to care for all of creation. On this page you can find ideas and tools for making life-affirming choices about how we inhabit and care for earth, our island home, and all of creation. Watch this page for news of activities at St. Mary’s. You can also use the links here to connect with others who are committed to this effort.
