What We Do

Welcome to Scarboro Missions’ new Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation Office (JPIC) Education Program called, Caring for Creation. This new program invites young people and adults to deepen their faith while focusing on caring for creation and caring for vulnerable peoples. In his encyclical, Laudato Si’, On Care for Our Common Home, Pope Francis reminds us that the earth is our common home and that it is our responsibility to care for it. He calls us to a personal change of heart and a collective transformation that responds to “both the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor.”
