Student Feedback

"I learned that there is a way to start an ecological conversion with the people's support if we adopt the right approach, that there is a lot of fruit to be harvested from a Creation Care ministry and that there are existing resources to guide the first steps of those who want to start this new ministry."  

Denise Violette

"This course has allowed me to confirm that the actions undertaken in our community correspond to a beautiful pastoral approach to Creation and encourages me to pursue this ecological mission and to promote it."

The price for this course is too expensive for me, but I'm really interested. What should I do?
