Food for our worms – Leave your worm food gifts at church on Sundays or drop off dur­ing the week.  Please remem­ber to remove the strings from teabags.  (NB — no dairy, cit­rus, onions or meat).  Remem­ber by using up our veget­able peel­ings in this way, we pre­vent green­house gasses such as CO2 and meth­ane from escap­ing into the atmo­sphere from land­fill.  It’s some­thing we can do as indi­vidu­als.   As a res­ult of the work of our little friends, I have some worm cast­ings to give away to garden­ers in the par­ish.  Just let me know.    Fr. Jeff
