About Us

Established in 2004, Greening Sacred Spaces (GSS) – The Ottawa Chapter is a practical program run by Faith & The Common Good (FCG) that assists faith communities with both the educational and spiritual dimensions of greening as well as the “how to” side of audits, retrofits, and generally reducing a faith community’s footprint.

Territorial Land Acknowledgement

Greening Sacred Spaces Ottawa recognizes that Ottawa is located on unceded territory of the Algonquin Anishinaabe Nation. We seek to live in respect, peace, and right relations and are mindful of broken covenants. By making a land acknowledgement we are taking part in an act of reconciliation, honouring the land and Indigenous heritage, which dates back over 10,000 years. We are grateful for the opportunity to live, work & worship on this territory.
