How can our Holy Apostles Community take steps to be more sustainable and kind to our environment?

MAY GREEN TIP:
We are all familiar with the plastic six pack holders that attach our favorite canned juices, soda, and beer. Did you know that they are an ocean hazard to birds and marine animals? Birds can catch a loop around their necks while fishing in the ocean and drown. Young seals and other marine animals could get the rings caught around their necks which could cause them to suffocate.

What can you do to help? Before you toss the six pack holders into the garbage, snip each ring with a scissors. When you're on the beach please pick up any six pack holders and snip before you throw them away. You can make a difference. Thank you!
Many thanks to parish member Ed Reiners for producing and purchasing our new lawn sign that announces the days we have Sunday School class . Thank you very much Ed Reiners!
Centering Prayer:
Looking for a spiritual network of individuals committed to receive the gift of contemplative prayer in which we experience God's presence within us? This method of prayer is both a relationship with God and a discipline to foster that relationship.

Visit our weekly Centering Prayer meetings held on Mondays at 5:30p.m.
