The 9th Catholic Ecological Awards

 

 

The Subcommittee for Environment under the CBCK Committee for Justice & Peace (President: Most Rev. Matthias Ri Iong-hun) held a ceremony for the 8th Catholic Ecological Award at the auditorium of the CCK on October 14, 2014.

 

The Grand Prix was awarded to the “Section for Pro-Life and Peace of the Association of Major Superiors of Religious Women in Korea.” The Subcommittee for Environment highly appreciated the endeavor of the Section for pro-Life and Peace for preservation of the divine order of creation as well as humanism, despite the continuing destruction of environment and the violation of human rights in Korea.

 

Two special prizes were given to the ‘Catholic Solidarity for Environment’ of Incheon Diocese and ‘House for Women in Changwon’.

 

The ‘Catholic Solidarity for Environment’ of Incheon Diocese, started with the Catholic Research Institute of Environment in 1993, has contributed to the renewal of the Church and evangelization of the society by encouraging the faithful to take actively part in the movement for Environment of parishes and dioceses.

 

‘The House for Women in Changwon’, started as a temporary shelter for single mother families in difficulties, was highly appreciated for its campaign to reduce food waste with all the members and tending vegetable garden also with children. The purpose of this institution, to give motivation to face new challenges and to realize the meaning of life, come true, not only for the inmates but for the volunteers. As a token of its appreciation of the Subcommittee for Environment chose this institution as the special prize winner, in the hope that it might be a small support and encouragement for the mothers, children, employees, and volunteers.
