Pope Francis has said that caring for creation concerns human relationships. In his general audience from June 5, 2013, Pope Francis said that “We are living in a time of crisis; we see it in the environment, but above all we see it in men and women. The human person is in danger… hence the urgent need for human ecology!”

The Diocese of Orlando is conducting a survey of diocesan parishes, schools and entities, to determine how our faith community is responding to the call of cultivating and caring for creation, which is an instruction of God which he gave not only at the beginning of history, but has also given to each one of us.
