Let's Help My Brother's Table
In response to the “cry of the poor” from the Vatican's Laudato Si Action Platform, the Creation Care Team invited parishioners to help make brown-bag lunches for My Brother’s Table on Sunday, Aug. 14 after the 9am Mass. We met in the Parish Center Hall to make sandwiches and bag the lunches. Kids were also welcome to come and help, and lent their artistic talents to color the bags or write notes. Thank you to all who donated time and goods for this important cause!
We are Composting!
We are excited to announce that we are now composting in the Parish Center and Rectory, using the services provided by Black Earth. We recognize our responsibility to care for God's great Earth and composting our food scraps is an important step toward this goal. When food is thrown in the garbage and taken to a landfill, the decomposition process releases dangerous green house gasses into the atmosphere, including methane, which is even more potent for trapping heat than carbon dioxide. By diverting our scraps to composting, we are doing our part to lessen the climate impact of waste disposal. The next time you come for coffee and donuts, please use the small, green compost bin to dispose of your soiled napkins, tea bags and food scraps.
Many people don't realize how easy it is to compost, and will be surprised that it does not need to be messy or smelly. The Creation Care Team is happy to guide any parishioner through the simple process of composting at home using the services of Black Earth or another provider.
