Green Group

In the past year the Green Group continued to work to make St. Ann’s and its parishioners more environmentally aware and responsible, and to provide an example to the entire community.

The Green Group continues to welcome your ideas for projects, as well as your participation.

Stewardship of the Environment

What is our environment? Our church facility… our home… our community… our parks… our natural resources… the Earth. Stewardship of our environment challenges us to care for the world around us as the precious gift from God that it truly is. Good stewards of this gift protect and care for the environment. Treat the earth well — it was not given to you by your parents; it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children. From an Ancient Proverb

Almighty God, in giving us dominion over things on earth, you made us fellow workers in your creation: Give us wisdom and reverence so to use the resources of nature, that no one may suffer from our abuse of them, and that generations yet to come may continue to praise you for your bounty; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.                                                                    (The Book of Common Prayer, pg. 827)
