Newsletter items for Sun 5th Sept 21

Season of Creation 1st Sept to 4th Oct Today is International Climate Sunday beginning our Season of Creation initiated by Pope Francis All around the world, Christians are uniting to pray and take action for our common home.  Amid crises that have shaken our world, the global Christian family was awakened to the urgent need to heal our relationships with creation and with each other during the ecumenical Season of Creation.  During the 2021 Season of Creation, from 1st September through 4th October, thousands of Christians on six continents get together for a time of restoration and hope, a jubilee for our Earth, and to discover radically new ways of living with creation.  More than ever before, the global Christian family will unite to pray and take action for our common home.                  Next Sunday the J&P Group will have a table in the Mary chapel providing information on the Climate crisis with suggestions for actions we can personally take to care for our Common Home. You will also be able to sign a petition started by Pope Francis calling on world leaders to urgently commit to the climate and biodiversity crisis during the meeting of world Leaders in Glasgow this November.

  1. Good website. Saw the history – shows an interest by yourselves in this which is good. Why all churches in the Diocese cannot follow suit? Only thing I thought of as an improvement – newsletter doesn’t have to be a PDF – it can be included on a page – supposedly better for the environment – small drop though in the huge ocean of problems though!!
