St. Teresa of Avila Parish in Summit, New Jersey, is expanding its green footprint by planting 40 evergreen trees in its cemetery. This effort marks a significant step in the parish’s ongoing mission to introduce 500 trees across its properties.

The tree-planting program, which was initiated in 2021, aligns with the principles of “Laudato Si’,” Pope Francis’ encyclical urging Catholics to save the environment. Since its inception, the initiative has seen the planting of approximately 200 trees on the church, school, and cemetery grounds.
