Green Church Program reaches out to the environment

Who knew there was a Green Church Program in Canada? Started in 2006 by the Canadian Centre for Ecumenism, "it's a ministry which aims to empower faith communities in adopting environmentally aware practices through action and awareness, as well as sharing a Christian spirituality closer to nature."

One of the churches that belongs to the program is Saint-Sauveur Catholic Church, located in Saint-Sauveur, Quebec. I visited this village in the Laurentians several winters ago. If I lived closer, I'd make it an annual pilgrimage.

Nearby is Mont Saint-Sauveur, a ski mountain and resort, where the Qu├ębec ski industry was born.
