September 1 is the World Day of Prayer for Creation. In honour of this day Missio is sharing the story of Fr Innocent, a Mill Hill Missionary (St Joseph’s Missionary Society) and the Mill Hill Superior in Cameroon – the first Cameroonian to be appointed to the role. His mission has been inspired and sustained by Laudato Si’.
Seeing the degradation and harm done to our precious planet, Fr Innocent has worked tirelessly both to campaign on climate change and to take action to halt its devastating effects in his own diocese.
Fr Innocent’s passion for Jesus, and for his people, continues to inspire his Parish community to care for our world and clean up our pollution. In doing so, he has also created food gardens which help nourish the many people who need immediate help in Bamenda.
