The Environment and Social Justice Team

Who are We?

The Environment and Social Justice Team (aka The Green Team) was formed in response to Bishop Michael Bird and the Diocese of Niagara creating the "Greening of Niagara Committee" and is part of the new arm of ministry that will help us more fully express ourselves as Christians.  The group meets the first Tuesday of each month in the church library. 

You are welcome to become part of this exciting ministry by joining the group, or just by sharing your ideas.  Contact John Dennis (Chair) through the St. James office (519-822-1061).
