Live Simply Tip of the Week The second part of the Laudato Si’ pledge calls us to Live More Simply. In Laudato Si’ Pope Francis invites us to, “return to that simplicity which allows us to stop and appreciate the small things, to be grateful for the opportunities which life affords us, to be spiritually detached from what we possess, and not to succumb to sadness for what we lack.” (222). As a way to live Laudato’ Si, we invite you to look for ways to use less, to share more, and to focus on relationships instead of things.There’s 10 items in this series – one each week
Week 1. Buy less stuff—Before purchasing something new, ask yourself, “Do I need this? Does this bring me joy?” Have clothes, shoes, and other items repaired rather than throwing them out.
Latest on the Homeless We understand that the winter night shelter run by local churches is not taking place this winter. Other provision is being provide by the Council. The clients are being given accommodation in houses of multiple occupancy. Volunteer may be recruited to check on the clients to make sure they are safe and have provisions.
