An Example for the Archdiocese Environment Outreach Committee

I believe that the Environmental Outreach Committee of the Archdiocese of Washington, has really not done enough to encourage and demonstrate the importance of the environment this Lent.

Therefore, I would like to introduce the Committee to one priest and his efforts to save not only souls, but the environment.

May they, and the Archdiocese as a whole, use his example as a model for every parish. Ask any priest or bishop what their primary function is, and most if not all will respond: "To save souls".

Fr Norbert Crombley, pastor of Our Lady of Sustainability, would add "...and planet Earth" at the end.

To demonstrate his concern for the environment and the earth, he's launched a light bulb replacement program at his parish, the only one of its kind in America.
