SMS Students and workers cutting firewood for kitchen, a task which will be significantly reduced since the installation of a new gas cooking system


Inspired by the St. Thomas Aquinas Inter-Philosophicum Symposium on Pope Francis' Encyclical Laudato Sí hosted by the Spiritan Missionary Seminary 28 January 2016, SMS resident students have undertaken a tree planting initiative in an effort to reduce the environmental impact of the use of fire wood for cooking.

 Over 150 trees have already been planted on the SMS compound. The students have also begun taking seedlings to their pastoral ministry sites where the youth with whom they are ministering will plant them on the orphanage, school and prison compounds. The initiative is part of a wider program to introduce resident students to issues of Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation.

For its part, in its concern over the use of firewood and its impact on the environment, the SMS administration recently installed a gas cooking system in the seminary kitchen. As a result, the need for firewood will be significantly reduced.
