The Parish as Oasis: An Introduction to Practical Environmental Care


Kevin Hargaden and Ciara Murphy

A practical and accessible introduction to how local churches can contribute to healing the environmental crisis. By focussing on practical ‘experiments’ that any parish can explore according to their own context and capacities, this book seeks to equip people with a hands-on understanding of the ideas unpacked in Laudato Si’. It is a book that aspires to inspire congregations to get their hands dirty, but also plants those initiatives within a coherent eco-theology.

Dr Kevin Hargaden is the Director and Social Theologian of the Jesuit Centre for Faith and Justice, Ireland.
Dr Ciara Murphy is the Environmental Justice Advocate of the Jesuit centre for Faith and Justice, Ireland.
