We discussed issues related to climate change & the developing world.

Fr Silvester A message from Fr Silvester. he says the COVID situation has worsened in Uganda & the country is now under critical lockdown. His diocese has had to suspend all teachers with no means of subsistence & they are having great difficulty providing food for their families. £25 would sponsor a family for a month & they’re looking to provide food for them for 6 month. There will be a 2nd collection after all Masses on Sun 25th July to support them.
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries – developed and developing – in a global partnership. They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests. https://sdgs.un.org/goals
