Earth Day Program
Thanks to all who joined us for Earth Day 2022: Pursuing the Common Good for Our Common Home with materials from the Catholic Climate Covenant. Together we prayed, read and discussed how our faith can guide us in the complex issues of climate change. We also left with plenty of actionable ideas to make a difference.
Litter Clean Up
Thank you to all who came to do the spring cleaning of our church grounds! We found a great deal of litter, sadly, and therefore plan to clean the grounds more regularly. Please email us if you would like to join us.
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. For advice on getting started, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (781) 631-8340 Monday - Wednesday.
