47 ways to help the Earth this Lent


Instead of giving up sweets or alcohol this Lent, why not give up wasted water and energy? Starting some great new habits (and breaking old bad ones) this liturgical season could help protect the Earth today and for future generations.

This Lenten Caring for Creation Calendar from the Environmental Outreach Committee of the Archdiocese of Washington offers spiritual reflections, sacrificial actions and practical suggestions to help you grow in your commitment to be a wise steward of God’s Creation.

To download the color or black-and-white PDFs of this calendar, visit the Faith in Action page of the archdiocesan website.

We prepare and support lay Catholics for two-year international, one-year domestic and 1-2 week short-term mission service opportunities in solidarity with impoverished and marginalized communities across the globe.
