  • March to end Fossil Fuels

    The UN reports that every 5 seconds, someone dies of air pollution.  Air pollution includes heat-trapping gases which result mainly from the combustion of fossil fuels. On Sunday, September 17th in New York City, people of faith and conscience will join the March to End Fossil Fuels, calling on President Biden to stop fossil fuel expansion and extraction.  Join your neighbors from the Capital Region and all over the world in the Faith Hub, which will march as a group.  Buses will leave in the morning from Schenectady and Albany to NYC.

  • About the CCT

    St. Vincent’s Catholic Parish in Albany has had an active Creation Care Team since 2016. We meet monthly and work to increase awareness of creation care as a faith-based value. We also offer ways to help parish members live more earth-friendly lives. We initiated the process by which our parish chose community solar electricity for its buildings, we sponsored a demonstration of electric cars, we organized an interfaith prayer service for the Season of Creation, and we created with parish members an Earth Day mural for display in the parish hall.

    Recently, we made a presentation on Community Solar Electricity as a means of reducing parish member’s household carbon footprint.  We’re also sponsored a faith formation program on  Food Waste and Composting. We’ll continue to write monthly environment related articles for the Church Bulletin, and when space is available we put creation related displays up on the parish bulletin board.

    Our Creation Care Team initiated the formation of CRICCC, and we continue to be very active in that group’s work. To find out more, please contact one of our co-chairs, Barbara DiTommaso,  at [email protected].
