Newsletter Items from the Justice & Peace Group week commencing 2nd May 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 discussions 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

 

LIVE SIMPLY Tip of the Week – more tips to attract Bees Here’s some Bee friendly flowers: Poppies can bloom from early summer, right up until October – giving bees months of pollen.  Evergreen clematis why not use them to brighten up a wall, or drape them over a pergola to provide shade during the summer?  Foxglove Bees absolutely love foxgloves, and on some days it seems like they’re almost queueing up to crawl inside their many petals.

 

Past Parish Projects for the next few weeks we’ll look back on some of the projects we supported.  Jubilee Action – renamed as Chance for Childhood chanceforchildhood.org/   The donations provided by St Mary of the Angels from 2011 to 2013 was spent to help pay for the construction of the Patongo Youth Centre in Uganda, for children traumatised by civil war to rehabilitate and educate them after being affected by conflict, including former child soldiers and abductees, to help them rebuild their lives and support themselves.

 

Homeless Project  Worthing Soup Kitchen are looking for a premises where they can run an Emmaus style charity shop alongside a zero waste cafe in Worthing which would help both the homeless and vulnerable in our community. If you know somewhere suitable please contact Khristina on 07974766375 or email worthingsoupkitchen@gmail.com Thank you
