Greening Your Church: A Practical Guide to Creation Care Ministry for Parishes, Dioceses and Religious Communities
Lévesque, Norman
Novalis, 2014
ISBN: 978-2-8964-6636-8


Working to save and preserve the environment has never been more urgent than now, for all people everywhere. For Christians, charged by God with the care of his creation from the book of Genesis onwards, this task is critical.

In Greening the Church, Norman Lévesque has written a practical guide to making churches more eco-friendly and environmentally aware. Using the example of ecological saints -- such as Saint Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of environmentalists, and Saint Kateri Tekakwitha -- he offers prayers, group activities and all kinds of ways to help, from bike racks in front of the church and carpooling to Sunday Mass to composting, recycling and hosting community events.

This book is vital for all clergy, pastoral workers, and teachers looking to lead the way on saving the environment. Help celebrate the glory of God's creation, help keep it alive for generations to come, and grow in appreciation of its wonder.
