Creation Care

The Creation Care Minstry of Saint Mark’s Cathedral strives to faithfully address the crisis of climate change. As stewards of the life-giving goodness of God’s creation, we will work with the Saint Mark’s and broader world communities to educate ourselves and take action together to preserve our shared planet and sustain life for the generations to come.
The Saint Mark’s Vestry has charged all of us to integrate Creation Care within each of our ministries and to identify innovative ways to reduce our institutional and personal carbon footprints. We encourage participation in the Episcopal Diocese of Olympia’s Carbon Offset Cooperative Mission ( as a way to measure, reduce, and offset your carbon footprint.
