St. James' Episcopal Church - Potomac 301-762-8040

Care for Creation

Commission Officer: Doug Holy, acting Chair and Vestry Liaison

Mission Statement
We believe that our world is sacred, having been created  by God, through Christ and in Christ. We are therefore committed to promoting respectful care for God’s creation and in particular to work against climate change and on behalf of climate justice.

Action Plan
The Care for Creation Commission is pursuing care for the Earth as an on-going everyday responsibility of our St. James’ parish members. In the process, the commission collaborates with our Episcopal diocese; local, regional, and national communities of faith; and other partners (e.g., Montgomery County Dept. of Environmental Protection, Maryland Dept of Natural Resources, Chesapeake Bay Trust) in order to achieve the most benefits for protection of our Earth and its resources.

What we look forward to

  • One or two gleaning-related activities between now and the end of the 2021 calendar year
  • Regular communications with St. James’ parishioners about Care for Creation as an on-going mission
  • Continued involvement with the Interfaith Partners for the Chesapeake and Interfaith Power and Light and making their resources available to the parish
