Care for God's Creation

The Care for God’s Creation Commission advocates for, educates about, and organizes tangible action motivated by environmental stewardship. In some cases, St. Martins’ actions in environmental stewardship, e.g., the installation of solar arrays to generate electricity on site, have inspired parishioners to consider similar actions for their homes.

The Commission recently recommended a goal for additional steps toward reducing our carbon footprint, and is brainstorming on goals for education and advocacy, including partnering with other local interfaith efforts in environmental stewardship. Much of the Commission’s work is done in concert with other parish organizations, such as the Public Policy Committee and the Landscape Committee.
