Pope Francis has invited people from around the world to take action to protect the environment this Laudato Si’ Week. This morning our Diocese announced an important measure to help protect our planet and build a more sustainable future; our divestment from fossil fuels.
The Diocese of Arundel & Brighton is the third Catholic Diocese in England and Wales to divest, with today’s announcement – including 41 faith institutions from 14 countries – the largest joint divestment announcement ever. Speaking about this important environmental development Bishop Richard said:
“Care for the world that has been given to us is an increasingly pressing need. It is therefore timely that the Diocese of Arundel & Brighton divests from fossil fuels. This positive step will contribute to the common good and, I trust, pave the way for further practical action to safeguard this and future generations.”
