The conference, “Faith and Environment: Questions and Challenges,” will be held from August 17 to 19 at St. Malo Retreat and Conference Center in Allenspark, Colorado.

The conference will welcome professionals and experts from different fields and faiths to discuss and reflect on the questions and challenges posed by today's environment. How the Catholic Church and society should respond responsibility of caring for the environment will also be explored.

Participants will include Archbishop Charles J. Chaput of Denver; Dr. Bernard Amadei: Founder of Engineers without Borders; Dr. Miguel Salazar Steiger, a Latin American theologian; Dr. Benjamin Hale, an Environmental Philosopher from the University of Colorado and Dr. Pablo Martinez, the founder of Multinational Parks in Central America.

Preceding the start of the conference, Creatio will hold a “Race to the Rock” 5k Race and a Family Fun Run fundraiser at 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, August 16.  The race, a family event to promote faith and environmental activities, will follow an optional 2:00 p.m. Mass.  Both events are open to the public.
