We are a Green Sanctuary

The Green Sanctuary (GS) program was originally an outgrowth of the Seventh Principle Project, a Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA)-affiliated environmental organization that was created in 1989. In 1991, the Seventh Principle Project published the Green Sanctuary Handbook, introducing Unitarian Universalist (UU) congregations to the concept of integrating our environmental consciousness into our faith communities. That first handbook helped UUs begin to imagine what it would look like if congregational life reflected the seventh Principle of Unitarian Universalism, “Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.”  To read more go to http://www.uua.org/environment/sanctuary/why/290237.shtml

Our Fellowship was recognized as a Green Sanctuary and presented with a Certificate at the Canadian Unitarian Council’s General Assembly in Quebec City in June of 2002. At that time, the Fellowship was delighted to be one of only five congregations in the UUA (and the only one in Canada) to have attained this certification.
