Guided and inspired by Pope Francis’s encyclical Laudato Si - On Care of Our Common Home, the St. Ignatius Green Team promotes faith-based creation care and environmental justice through education, action and advocacy.

In Laudato Si, Pope Francis reminds us that we all have a responsibility to be good stewards of God’s Creation. Damage to the Earth affects everyone adversely, but the poor are disproportionately harmed by degradation to our waterways, land and atmosphere. The Green Team seeks   to heighten awareness of crucial environmental linkages to social justice, as well as to implement more environmentally conscious practices within the parish.

We welcome new members to our team!
