Committed to sustainable energy

A geothermal heating and cooling system was recently installed at our Orchard House, where some of our Sisters live and work. Geothermal systems provide renewable energy by utilizing the constant temperature deep within the earth, and they operate efficiently and effectively regardless of weather conditions.

As one of 13 Laudato Si communities in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, our Congregation remains committed to acting responsibly in the use and care of our planet’s resources. A geothermal system was also installed at the CPPS administrative office building in May 2017.
