Caring for our environment as effective stewards is a way in which we show love for God and our neighbours.
The Environmental Commission for the Rockhampton Diocese was established as a result a 2006 Synod Motion. The purpose of the Environmental Commission is to support individuals and parishes in the Diocese that extends from Keppel on the Capricorn Coast to the Northern Territory border to promote more effective environmental stewardship. To support this, individuals and parishes are encouraged to improve sustainable practices by developing better knowledge about the environmental issues that confront us such as water use and climate change, and what actions to take to reduce individual and collective environmental footprints.
