Creation Care All-Parish Survey

with 12 Comments

The Creation Care Ministry team wants to hear from YOU! Everyone is the Saint Mark's community is invited to complete the brief survey below to help guide our programming in 2021.

There are just eight simple questions—it should take less than five minutes to complete.

The deadline to submit is February 14, 2021. Thank you!


“The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof, the world and those who dwell therein.”  —Psalm 24:1

Saint Mark’s Cathedral has set a goal for its campus and households to achieve a net zero carbon footprint by 2030. The Creation Care Ministry supports this goal and strives to faithfully address the crisis of climate change. See our Creation Care webpage for more on this.

A “net zero carbon footprint” means we measure and reduce our carbon emissions and offset the remaining carbon footprint by contributing to carbon offset programs. We have chosen the national Episcopal Church’s carbon tracker ( because it offers a way to individually and collectively measure and reduce our emissions that come from five basic household areas where we have the most impact on climate change. These five areas—electricity, home heating, transportation, food, and waste—account for 40% of US global emissions.

We ask that you, a member of our Saint Mark’s family, complete this survey to guide us in our work to help our households achieve this goal.

    This is a big issue that is international and ecumenical. Would like to see outreach to the movement nationally, in Europe, and other parts of the world. One possibility might be to join the World Day Prayer for the Care of Creation. I would be interested in supporting Taize service(s) toward this.

    Without a healthy planet, all living things are in extreme danger of extinction. All of them.

    I already wrote a comment. Why are you asking again?

      Jane, if you selected one of the checkboxes labelled “other,” then you will have to type something in *the box just below that option* before you can move on to the next question.
