Care for God’s Creation: Care for the Earth is not just an Earth Day slogan …
…it is a requirement of our faith! Social Justice wants to encourage actions that are consistent with Laudato Si. One action that can make a difference is using a reusable grocery bag. The average reusable grocery bag used has a life span of more than 700 disposable plastic bags. (www.reusethisbag.som)
To help you make a change, each parish family will receive 1 reusable grocery bag in association with Earth Day—the Last weekend in April.
The Social Justice Committee in partnership with the Ladies’ Guild will be holding a Bake Sale at all Masses the weekend of February 15th and 16th. The funds raised will be used to purchase the bags.
Your support is needed! Each parish family is asked to donate baked goods on the weekend of February 15th & 16th. Bring your items (labeled) to the tables in the Social Hall before Mass. Then after Mass please come purchase a baked item. For more information about the committee contact Pat Lund: firstname.lastname@example.org.
