The Creation Care Committee (previously Committee on Ecological Stewardship) provides resources to help churches understand the spiritual value of Creation Care and practical information to help individuals transform their lives and become stewards of God's creation.

In the Episcopal Diocese of West Texas we are blessed with varied ecosystems that include the Gulf of Mexico, barrier islands, bays and estuaries, fertile farm lands, semi-arid rangeland, and rugged hill country. And the Earth gives us many of us our livelihoods - the petrochemical industry, agriculture, shipping, fishing, and tourism.

Creation Care is not just about the environment. It is about all of Earth, our island home, including us, our families, and neighbors. It is about making a living as well as living gently on Earth. It is about recognizing our commitments and limitations while at the same time having a vision of what we can be.


The Episcopal Church Covenant for Creation Care is a commitment to practice loving formation, liberating advocacy and life-giving conversation as individuals, congregations, ministries and dioceses. Click here to learn more.
