Saturday Breakfast Is Haulin’
St. Mary's has joined in a food composting program. The City of Eugene has begun composting food waste for commercial customers, mostly restaurants. Saturday breakfast composts 25 to 30 gallons of waste each breakfast. That's 25-30 gallons that no longer goes into our dumpster. Anything organic gets composted: food waste, of course, but also paper (like napkins), and cardboard (like egg cartons). In fact, at these Saturday Breakfasts, we now remove all of the large garbage cans. We use only three small trash cans, for plastic packaging and the like. We continue, as we have for many years, to recycle metal, glass, much plastic, and cardboard. A big THANK YOU goes to Norton Cabell for his work with the composting project.

Outreach is one of St. Mary’s most visible ministry areas. Through out the year, parishioners are feeding our hungry neighbors, filling Christmas and Easter food baskets, filling Christmas stockings for children in need, raising money for ERD (Episcopal Relief and Development) causes, promoting good stewardship of God’s creation, and countless other outreach activities. Below is a list of many of these outreach ministries and activities. Watch for updates here and in our monthly newsletter, The Bellringer.
