The ongoing GREEN MISSION of the parish family of St. John the Evangelist, Kitchener is to continually conserve, preserve, and renew the materials and resources that define the physical spaces our faith built.
We are called, both as individuals and in community, to be good stewards to all of God’s creation, mindful of our essential role in the Worldwide Anglican Communion’s Fifth Mark of Mission: To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation, and sustain and renew the life of the earth.
In response, we thankfully embrace the care of our buildings, grounds, community, and the natural environment as a growing ministry of faith in action.
The IMPLEMENTATION of environmental ministry at St. John the Evangelist Anglican Church is carried out through the Green Passion Environmental Initiatives program. This ad hoc group of parishioners seeks to inform, engage and support our church family in undertaking hands-on projects to reduce our dependency on non-renewable resources and increase our positive environmental impact.
Our church family is committed to investing annual funding in support of environmental stewardship.
