Green Team

Environmental Stewardship Committee (Green Team)

Since 2003 the Resurrection Environmental Stewardship Committee (Green Team) has focused on Stewardship of the Earth (care of creation). Regularly a subcommittee of the Social Justice Committee educates the parish through the Parish Bulletin regarding ways in which parishioners can “stay green.” The parish offices and Resurrection Site of Holy Family Schools have made consistent efforts to “go green.”
