The focus of the Green Group is the 5th Mark of Mission, which is “to strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the life of the earth”. It is our conviction that we are charged with care of Creation and as stewards of the earth, we must always be aware of God’s call to us to live gently on the earth mindful of the seventh generation. Our mandate is to keep the 5th Mark of Mission before the parishes and people of the Diocese of Ontario and beyond.
The Green Group meets monthly in the homes of members to share good local food, ideas and information. We submit items and articles to eNews and Dialogue and occasionally the Anglican Journal about creation care. Rev. Ian Ritchie is working on the season of creation liturgical resources. At this time Josef Cihlar is the diocesan representative for the Creation Matters Working Group of the national church.
