Faith and Environment

Currently Sr Caroline Vaitkunis, with support from Christine Mitchell, offers information on care for our environment through the newsletter and on the boards at each church. There are prayers and articles of interest, plus information on what people can do in their daily lives to live more sustainably.


There are many local groups in which people can become involved and contribute to caring for our environment, such as LoveourStreets3184, which pick up litter from a designated area once a month, to Beach patrol to making cloth bags for shopping.


Sr Caroline is currently promoting a sustainable approach to parishschool events. On occasion Sr Caroline speaks on issues and campaigns at the masses as well as an information stall.

Ideally, we would like to establish an active Faith and Environment group. Please speak to Sr Caroline or Christine if this interests you.
