All are welcome to join the next online meeting of the Diocesan Climate Group on Tuesday  14 December at 7pm via Zoom. 

Inspired by COP26 even more parishes and schools across the Archdiocese have signed up to  CAFOD’s livesimply award, as we look to reduce our carbon footprints.

LOVE – from the CAFOD Advent Calendar  

‘John went into all the country around the Jordan, preaching a baptism of repentance for the  forgiveness of sins’ 

Merciful God, you sent John the Baptist to preach repentance. Forgive us for the times when we  have done wrong, when we have hurt other people and damaged our earth. Lead us to make a  change, to live differently, preparing a way and making paths straight. Amen.
