Newsletter Items from the Justice & Peace Group week commencing 25th April 2021

CAFOD Parliament in your Parish is about engaging with our MP’s to plan a better post-COVID world. This year the UK hosts both the G7 meeting of rich countries, discussing overseas Debt & Aid, and the Cop26 Climate Summit.  It’s important to hold our politicians accountable after the Pandemic to rebuild in a way that addresses the world’s most pressing ecological and social issues.
Pope Francis in his recent document ‘Fratelli tutti’, calls and urges us to be involved in the politics of ‘renewing our troubled society’.In response to that call we are inviting Catholics of all ages from Worthing, Rustington, Lancing, Shoreham Parishes to join us in a Zoom meeting with our MP’s Sir Peter Bottomley & Tim Loughton, to just listen to or join in a discussion on climate change, debt, Aid budget, and to encourage our MPs to take any actions we, or they, may think appropriate.

Please email: rod.504t@ntlworld.com  if you would like to be included and the name of your MP, and we will keep you informed. The Zoom link to be sent when date is confirmed.  For more info. see  https://cafod.org.uk/Campaign/Reclaim
