 Creation Sustainability Ministry (CSM)

The Creation Sustainability Ministry (CSM) is an outreach of the Office of Life, Justice and Peace in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. 
CSM’s primary focus is to encourage and support parishes seeking to establish an individualized Creation Sustainability Ministry. Toward this end, parishes are invited to adapt the ministry’s Vision Statement and ground their ministries on three foundational principles, Spiritual Formation, Development and Justice.

Educate Students with Respect Life Week Curriculum
Our annual Respect Life Week Curriculum includes information for TK-12 about human ecology and caring for our common home with students. 

Volunteer to Support a Local Community Garden and Food Collection
Many local organizations like MEND Poverty, Seeds of Hope and Sowing Seeds for Life have community gardens to provide fresh fruits and vegetables to low income families. Other organizations like Food Forward collect produce from backyards for food pantries.
Vision Statement
With faith in an ever creating and sustaining God, the Scriptures, and Catholic Social Teaching as our foundation, we hold Creation as the holy ground upon which the Creator forms us and gives us life.  As such, we are called to witness to the interconnectedness and sacredness of all life, and thus become wise and caring stewards of what God has lovingly made.
