Creatio is a Catholic non-profit organization that promotes reconciliation between humans and creation as a response to environmental problems. Our goal is to facilitate an active transformation of ourselves and others as well as the environment through intellectual, spiritual and stewardship activities. Creatio aims to accomplish this goal through mission trips, outdoor adventure trips, pilgrimages, conferences, and community.
This blog encompasses a wide variety of writings on the topics of environment, faith, reconciliation, people, and the integration of these experiences. The writings come from a diverse group of people, including professionals in the environmental field, participants from Creatio mission or adventure trips, and others working to understand and promote the relationship between faith and environment.
