Our focus on Ecology comes from our Faith. As a Catholic community, we feel connected to Gods creation. We are all called to protect out natural environment. This approach permeates everything we do at Holy Family.
Sustainability addresses the ongoing capacity of Earth to maintain all life. Sustainable patterns of living meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.
Pope Benedict XVI has emphasized that human ecology is an imperative. The Pope highlighted that a change in mentality is necessary to quickly arrive at a global lifestyle that respects the covenant between humanity and nature without which the human family risks disappearing.
Our focus on food production comes from a variety of influences. We are all acutely aware that the world needs to start producing more food. At Holy Family our approach is to act locally. We are also learning together about the joys of cooking using freshly grown produce.
