Stewardship of Earth
This program is new and is still developing. At St. Thomas More, we try to have a special liturgy on Earth Day. We use this time to encourage parishioners to take care of the earth -- to plant flowers and trees and to promote the three "R's" -- reduce, reuse and recycle -- of Stewardship of the Earth. We have a recycling program with a company that picks up all our recycling material. Our Stewardship of the Earth Committee continues to work on other projects based on the U.S. Bishops' Policies on Preserving the Earth, including immunization of children in inner city parishes, and other programs.
