Saving Mother Earth: Electricity & Water

Energy Efficient Lighting in Chapel

Holy Spirit Verona, using the New Jersey Cleanenergy Program, has transitioned to energy efficient light bulbs, and replaced several faucet spigots.  This is one of our many efforts to care for Mother Earth, by reducing our electricity and water consumption.

Thanks to Greenfaith, Inc. and parishioner, Christine Liaukus, for helping make this happen!
