Sustainability – Where to Begin?

Beyond a reasonable doubt scientists have established that climate change is occurring, it's due to human causes, it poses significant risks to our well-being, and it can be addressed through changes in energy technologies, public policies and the actions of individuals.  The Catholic Church accepts the science and takes the same position.

Here's what you can do:

1.   Educate yourself.  Go to the Sustainability page on the Parish website:

2.    Join your fellow parishioners as we build a Sustainability Project here at St. Francis.  Contact Scott Wright (734-821-2121). 

3.    Share Vegetarian Recipes Here. St. Francis Parish, Ann Arbor, began sharing vegetarian recipes as  we fasted from energy, other carbon sources, and simplified our lifestyles during our "Energy Fast to Sack Hunger", with the savings/donations given to Food Gatherers during the 2010 Lenten season.   Learn more about our St. Francis Parish Sustainability Project at:
