ECO-PALMS for Palm Sunday Services
The palms used for St. Anne's Palm Sunday services are ECO-PALMS. The designation of ECO-PALMS assures the purchaser that the palm harvesters are earning a fair income for their labor and that the palms are being harvested from the rain forest in an ecologically healthy, environmentally sustainable way thereby protecting the future employment of the harvesters and the rain forest's rich biodiversity which includes the winter habitat of many migratory bird species. More information on ECO-PALMS and this project is available in the Kennedy Parish Hall.
St. Anne's Receives "Green" Grant
For the second time in four years, St. Anne's has received a $5000 Green Grant from the North Carolina Episcopal Church Foundation. Green Grants are designed to support projects that allow a church to reduce the consumption of energy and other natural resources required to operate a congregation's facilities. The grant will be used to assist us in replacing the windows in the Child Care Center with double-pane, energy efficient windows.
