Through these experiences, we work to create an environment of encounter – encounter with God, with ourselves, with others, and with creation. Creatio members are volunteers, professionals, and friends working to address environmental and human issues on a deeper level. Our goal is to facilitate an active transformation of ourselves and others, as well as the environment. Creatio is a Catholic 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established in Colorado, USA.
Creatio’s spirituality is focused on strengthening the four relationships: relationship with self, with one another, with nature and with God. We encourage all of our missionaries to be open to experience a deepening of these relationships while on our trips.
Creatio was founded in 2002 by a group of U.S. college students with the goal of serving the poorest of the poor in Peru. That do-it-yourself mission trip soon became another mission, and another, and eventually the identity and purpose of Creatio became apparent: to guide all people to encounter the beauty of creation and the Creator through service to the poor, mission trips, outdoor adventure, and environmental stewardship. True to our roots, we strongly believe in taking action whenever and wherever a need arises. As an organization we exist for you, and want to help you achieve your vision, the same way our founder and his friends achieved theirs on that first mission trip. Please contact us if our current Experiences do not meet a need you’ve discovered or an idea that you have. We can help you get started planning, connect you with others, help fundraising, and help you achieve your vision for a better you and a better world.
Creatio can’t do it alone! We need missionaries to help bring the joy of Christ and humanitarian aid to those most in need. Join us on one of our upcoming adventure missions where you will experience first-hand the impact of serving the poorest of the poor while growing in deep friendships with your fellow missionaries and those you serve.
