Mission Center: The Episcopal Church: Advocacy

Eco-Justice Ministries

Eco-justice ministries are those designed to heal, defend, and work toward justice for all God’s creation—land, water, air, plants, animals, human beings—all creation. In the Episcopal Church, these ministries have become more widely accepted as an important part of our call as people of faith.

The fundamental interrelatedness of Eco-Justice Ministries reminds us that we are called to respect the kinship of all creation through education, advocacy, and action as part of our faith, and to help heal our disconnection from the rest of God’s creation.
