New Green Opportunity for Parishes

GreenFaith and the Episcopal Church have announced a collaboration to enroll Episcopal churches in the GreenFaith Certification Program. The program provides resources and structure for parishes to become greener and to provide leadership to encourage other congregations to become better stewards of the environment. Thirty Episcopal congregations will receive subsidies covering 50% of the cost of the program.

Details about the program are available in the articles Innovative partnership aims to help Episcopal churches ‘go green’ from Episcopal News Service and GreenFaith and the Episcopal Church Announce Environmental Collaboration on the GreenFaith website. 

GreenFaith is offering free webinars so for church leaders who want to learn more about this opportunity.  The hour-long webinars will be on:
