Care for Our Common Home

OLGC is an active participant of the Arlington Diocese Care for Creation Network that contains many parishes working on various programs under the "Laudato Si" message. Events at the various churches are being communicated throughout all the parishes to heighten awareness of this very important program, and encourage more to become mindful of our environment, and small changes we can make to improve for future generations.


OLGC’s Green Initiative Program aims to provide educational information and heighten awareness about the need to “Go Green” to all members of the OLGC Community, whether church members or school families, and especially the youth. We strive to demonstrate the benefits to the environment of a reduced carbon footprint for today and for future generations.

Our efforts include recycling, reduction of paper waste, discontinuing the use of toxic cleaning products, the introduction of agriculture to school programs, and providing ideas and opportunities for all parishioners to emulate Pope Francis and his "Laudato si’ encyclical. We will strive to find further ways in which OLGC can be part of the global Care for Our Common Home.
