Justice and Peace Group

THE CRY OF THE POOR  Pope Francis calls on us to hear the cry of the earth and of the poor, who suffer most from climate change.  A ‘Season of Creation’ has been called for, when all churches are encouraged to dedicate a time of prayer and action for the environment.  We supported CAFOD’s campaign calling on the World Bank to put funds into renewable energy for poor communities who have none.  This week our Justice & Peace group provide another opportunity to take action for our world.  Christian Aid call on high street banks to stop putting our money into firms that extract highly polluting fossil fuels and instead support much needed renewable energy industries:  www.christianaid.org.uk/campaigns/climate-change/the-big-shift  Please sign the petition on the table in the social area.  Additionally, if you bank with one of the big four: Barclays, Lloyds, RBS, or HSBC, please also take a relevant sample letter to send or take to your local branch.  The next meeting of J&P will be on Tuesday 10th October, 7.45pm, in the parish centre.
