Environmental Reflections 
Saint Days

In 1996, starting with Lectionary Year B, the MEESC launched a multi-year project to complete reflections and comments on the earth-centered aspects of the Lectionary readings. Work on filling the gaps in this page will be undertaken each time we approach the Saint's day; however, input is accepted at any time. If you would like to contribute, please see the directions at the end of this page.
