Winter in Minnesota. Guess what?… It can be cold. To prevent turning into snowfolk, we tend to take refuge indoors. But for the good people at St. Mary of Mount Carmel Catholic Church and School, their cozy refuge was being rocked by icy blasts every time someone used their main doors in the winter. That’s why leaders from the church in Long Prairie, Minnesota (pop. 3661), decided to take action.
“I learned that you don't have to look very far to find projects that can have a positive impact on your school's energy efficiency, especially when you have a 116 year-old building!” noted Linda Dinkel, who helped sheppard in the project.
