Our Green Sanctuary Ministry Team works to honor the interconnected web of life and to make this UU principle more visible and real to the congregation by promoting environmental sustainability at UU Wellesley and in the larger community. We also work to maintain our official designation as a Green Sanctuary Congregation through the Unitarian Universalist Association. To these ends we have advocated for plate collections to help our church buildings become more energy efficient: funds raised have enabled us to install better outdoor lighting, replace light bulbs in our Parish Hall with good quality LEDs, and obtain a new, more energy efficient freezer for the church kitchen. Plate collections have also enabled us to purchase 10-25% renewable energy for the past few years.
During this church year we are promoting educational programs on climate change, recycling, banning plastic bags, and the importance of including native plants in the landscape.
We meet monthly, usually on Monday evenings. Check the date posted on our Bulletin Board in Parish Hall or click HERE to send an email requesting more information.
