The Green Group was constituted to encourage right relations with Creation within our church and without,
in all we do.
Greening our sacred place is about realizing our connection with the universe and its elements.
This means practicing spiritual and ecological values in our everyday lives. We can begin by changing the way we shop, reducing our energy use, eliminating toxic chemicals, and making conscious choices about the food we eat.
St. Paul's also participates with other local churches under the group name Eco-Churches of West Hamilton (EcoWHam)
Knox Presbyterian, Dundas
St. Augustine's Roman Catholic Church
St. Mark's United, Dundas
St. James Anglican Church, Dundas
St. Paul's United, Dundas
Westdale United Church, Hamilton
To practice and advance ecological sustainability in keeping with Christian principles of stewardship.
Representatives from each participating church have been meeting in Dundas since July 2009 to help each other to promote ecological activities in the pastoral charges/parishes, and to learn about environmentally sustainable practices that can be implemented in their homes, churches, and the wider community.
