Other Ideas

 

People of all faiths can be responsible stewards of God's gifts.  In Laudato Si', Pope Francis calls for each of us to care for our common home.  He asserts that science supports the moral imperative for us to gather, to speak, and to act for the planet and the poor.  Consider these parish initiatives and plot a course of action in your own community.
