Religious Organizations teams up with Environmental Groups to protect Chung-Hwa Coastal Wetland

Catholic Church Taichung Diocese Archbishop Mr. Su Yao-Wen hosts "Prayer for Taiwan's Ecosystem"

Since the beginning of this year, Taiwan Academy of Ecology and Catholic Church groups have gradually begun promoting so-called "Eco-Gospel"

"Eco-Gospel" is based on the Catholic Church's belief that "The Good Lord created Heaven & Earth and the degradation of the environment is the direct result of mankind's decision to abandon nature and God. Spreading the Holy Word is in essence spreading 'God's leniency and grace' and 'The Earth's flawless

creation by God'". Thus through external "education", the "Eco-Gospel" initiative aims to rebuild the relationship between man and nature as well as to cultivate kindness and ethical actions towards the environment.

The Catholic Church wishes to elevate the care-for-life awareness through initiatives to care for the environment; thus protecting all beings on earth. This also coincides with the message by Pope Benedict XVI in his holiness's New Year address titled "World Day of Peace 2010" in which he said "If You Want to Cultivate Peace, Protect Creation" and called on humankind to respect the nature and safeguard the universe if we wish to maintain and sustain world peace.

In order to enlist more non-environmental groups to "Protect Chung-Hwa Coastal Wetland", Taiwan Academy of Ecology and Catholic Church's Taichung Diocese have partnered with Buddhist Chinese Studies for Beginners, Tien-Ma Cavalry, Chung-Hwa Environmental Protection League, Wang Gong-Ke Art & Cultural Association and Providence University's Woodpacker Environmental Team to collectively host the "2010 Protect Chung-Hwa Coastal Wetland - 88 Cycling Carnival". Event will be held August 8th and hosted by Archbishop Su-Yao-Wen in which he will offer prayers for Taiwan's Ecology. Participants will also commit to the following environmental declaration:
