The St. Margaret Mary Parish Earth Care Committee works with staff and parishioners to make our building and property more environmentally sustainable by reducing, reusing and recycling resources. The Earth Care Committee also provides educational resources and programs to help parishioners understand Catholic Social Teaching on environmental issues and to adopt environmentally sustainable practices in their own homes and workplaces.
We welcome new members to help with this important work. If you would like to get involved in our Earth Care Committee, please contact our parish Justice & Outreach Minister, Tom Cordaro, at 630-369-0777 or
