New Committee Forming
Our parish has had its’ share of interactions with homeless people on church property. The City of Portland has recommended that we establish a firm policy, both pro-active and re-active to handle this issue. The Vestry is putting together a small committee to draft such a policy. If you are interested in participating, please contact Chuck Martin, Senior Warden. We plan on completing it before June 23rd.

ECO-FAITH NOTES

The average Electric Vehicle (EV) in the U.S. costs about $3.74 worth of electricity to drive 100 miles.  A comparable conventional car costs about $13.36  (EPA estimates…in Portland it’s less). They have about a 99 MPG energy equivalent. Most EV’s have a range of about 70 – 90 miles between charges, making them a “niche” car for people whose daily driving is usually shorter trips.  - Steve Hiscoe
