Praise be You for Sister Water


Our pastoral ministry at Assumption Church (Syracuse, NY) has just completed another JPIC initiative with the installation of  “rain gardens” on the front lawn of the St. Francis Friary. This project, funded by the “Save the Rain” grant of Onondaga County, captures the rain from the church roof into basins that slow the flow into our lakes and rivers.  The basins are filled with soil and have an entire garden of plants that are planted under the mulch which will grow in the Spring to enhance the property.
