Catherine Martin, the Irish Minister for Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media, said at a book launch that the value of faith communities in promoting a more sustainable future must not be underestimated.
“One of our core values as Christians is to be stewards of God’s creation, to care for the earth and to care for each other,” she said.
Launching Fr Dermot Lane’s new book, Nature Praising God, the deputy leader of the Green Party, Ms Martin
told the gathering in the Church of the Ascension, Balally, Dublin: “Here tonight I am reminded of just how powerful an ally the environmental movement has in faith communities.”
