Laypeople’s lead in caring for the environment must be welcomed as a new « religious and moral mission » for the 21st-century, but this is not their first faith commitment to tackle urgent current problems. Before laypeople got structured as Religious congregations, several Church ministries for the sick, the orphaned, the elderly or dying began as lay initiatives.
