Catholic Climate Covenant reminds us that the remainder of September and through October 4th is a special time of prayer for the Earth, our common home.

One way to take action on behalf of the environment is to participate in upcoming e-waste collection days in Huntley (September 19th) and at McHenry County College (October 3rd).  Some fees may apply.

Details concerning these events and other ways of safeguarding the environment can be found at  https://www.mchenry.edu/green/greenguide.pdf (Spanish version available on the site).
