Earthkeepers
Earthkeepers is a group of Saint Markans who believe that care of creation is not only an important policy; it is also a moral obligation.

The Fifth Mark of Mission of the Episcopal Church is:

To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the life of the earth

In accordance with this goal, the Episcopal Church in Minnesota has chosen its Mission Opportunity for 2016 to be

Engaging God’s creation through engaging all God’s creation

To work toward this goal, Earthkeepers of Saint Mark’s:

  • sponsors monthly lunches on environmental topics during the church year
  • plans activities for Earth Week, Blessing of the Species, and other special events.
  • maintains a collection of books and videos on environmental topics in the Saint Mark’s Library
  • hosts Minnesota Earthkeepers seminars and workshops
  • promotes energy efficiency and sustainable practices at the Cathedral

Everyone is welcome to attend and help out whether their interest is the spiritual appreciation of nature, practical steps to preserve and protect creation, or public policy affecting the environment. If you are interested in knowing more, please email stmarks4theearth@gmail.com
