FOSSIL FUEL DIVESTMENT NEWS; The Archdiocese of Birmingham has divested from companies which extract fossil fuels with immediate effect, cementing its commitment to action in the climate  emergency. 

The Archdiocese has changed its policy to exclude investments in any company which derives more than 5% of its revenues from fossil fuels and is joining the ranks of all those who have committed to  attaining net zero carbon emissions by 2030. Divestment in fossil fuels is one of the first steps of  many which we will take to ensure that we will not fund the industries which destroy God’s creation  and impact the poor. 

We are pleased to be part of the global divestment announcement to be made by the World Council  of Churches, the Laudato Si’ Movement, Operation Noah, Green Anglicans and GreenFaith on  October 25, joining four Catholic dioceses and many other faith organisations from around the world  who have announced their commitment to ethical investment.

Living Simply – Winter 2021

LOCKDOWN LIVE SIMPLY CHALLENGES

Living Simply – more challenging in Lockdown?

Lockdown and the various restrictions on where we go and what we do may be undermining some of the good habits we had adopted. We’re doing far more shopping online which generates more cardboard, bubble wrap, plastic packaging, not all of which can be recycled via our blue bins. So, what do you do with plastic bags such as bread wrappers, or with spent light bulbs – either low energy or old incandescent, or spent batteries. 

Image
Think about what you can recycle.

Recycle Now https://www.recyclenow.com/ is a really useful website which provides advice on what can be recycled and where using a postcode location finder tool. For example, “squidgy” plastic bags can be recycled at Sainsbury’s (Dunchurch Road); Tesco (Leicester Road) and Morrisons (Lutterworth); and low energy light bulbs should be recycled at Hunters Lane Waste Management Centre or Currys PC World. Old incandescent bulbs are not recyclable sadly.  At present, you may need to try to find space at home to store items until it’s possible to go to recycling hubs but try not to lose the will to recycle all you can.

Live Sustainably….banking

It’s hard to survive these days without a bank account – any organisation from government, to employers, utilities etc only want to deal with us via an account. How many of us then consider the ethical credentials of who we bank with? Do the banks which profit from managing our accounts use those profits in a sustainable and beneficial way? Time, perhaps, to ask a few questions and compare the credentials of banks such as Triodos https://www.triodos.co.uk/ , for example, with those of the main High Street banks. Ethical Consumer magazine conducted a review in August 2020 – it makes very interesting reading: https://www.ethicalconsumer.org/money-finance/shopping-guide/current-accounts

Live Sustainably….walk more

It’s also important to keep getting as much fresh air as possible during the cold months to reduce the chance of catching infections and to cut down on carbon emissions, by combining walking with essential errands.  For example, even if it’s easier and more comfortable to jump in the car to go to the supermarket on a cold day, if you can, why not walk there instead for smaller shopping trips that are manageable to carry/trolley home?

Live In Solidarity

Not seeing one another at church or in other settings has limited our opportunities to discuss the things that matter to us. It may also have limited our awareness of the fronts on which CAFOD is campaigning. Visit: https://cafod.org.uk/Campaign/Latest-campaigns to see how you can engage with ongoing initiatives around climate change, poverty, peace and human rights and much more.

First Reading; Ezekiel 33:7-9. If you do not speak to the wicked man, I will hold you responsible for his death.

MASSES  at the Weekend: Sacred Heart, Saturday 5pm and Sunday 9.30am. English Martyrs, Sunday 11am. No Saturday Mass at Present.

Sunday and Weekday Masses from Sacred Heart are normally available on YouTube. Sunday Mass at 9.15 am (This is a recording of the Saturday evening Mass). There will be recorded Weekday Masses from Sacred Heart available on YouTube usually by 12 noon each day.

THE SEASON OF CREATION 1st September to October 4th, Feast of St Francis.Pope Francis calls us to keep the Season of Creation at this time of year. He asks us to focus on the message of ‘Laudato Si’, his important letter published five years ago, reminding the whole human family to be aware of our responsibility to care for our common home. 

Here are some thoughts on our response to Laudato Si and how we might take our own personal responsibility for measures in our daily lives that can help make a difference. Please read this and reflect on the message for your life. 

GOOD TO SEE YOU; It is good to see attendance at the Masses in both parishes being maintained and increasing slowly. We quite understand if people still do not feel confident in returning to Mass just yet. Thank you for your generous response to the Collection and especially to those who have made donations to cover the ‘backlog’ caused when public Mass was not available. 

ENGLISH MARTYRS SCHOOL has now opened for the new school year and all is going well. Our thanks to the teachers and staff for all the hard work in making the school a safe place for all.

ENGLISH MARTYRS PARISH HALL; The work to renovate and improve the facilities-toilets and kitchen has been completed. It looks great.  It will help to provide better facilities for our users and the parish. We have funded it from funds the parish had invested with the diocese. 

Living Simply – Season of Creation

One of the Creation stained glass windows at Sacred Heart.

RESPOND NOW TO THE LAUDATO SI’ CHALLENGE

Five years on from the publication of Laudato Si’, Pope Francis’ encyclical letter exhorting us to “Care for our Common Home”, we are called to act and we are reminded that safeguarding Creation is everyone’s responsibility. Perhaps our experience of the Covid-19 pandemic has made us more aware of what really matters in our lives.

Live Simply

Remember those first days of Lockdown? Food, at its most essential, was a real concern. Suddenly those who had store cupboards were inspecting stock, some people even bought second freezers to stock up as supermarkets rationed purchases. We were confronted by the importance of making use of every scrap of food, of making dishes from scratch. We looked to local producers for fresh dairy, vegetables and fruit. 

  • Let’s continue to care about our food, how it is grown and how far it travels to reach our plates. Let’s dramatically reduce food waste. The Vatican’s Laudato Si’ guide says: “whenever food is thrown out it is as if it were stolen from the table of the poor.”

Live Sustainably

Five years on the review of Laudato Si’ also warns against a “throwaway culture” more generally, highlighting how such carelessness depletes natural resources, creates disastrous levels of contaminating waste, kills all manner of creatures. 

  • Let’s try to waste less, slash plastic, paper, energy waste, buy only what we need, recycle and re-purpose as much as we can.

Live in Solidarity with the Poor

Does the phrase “circular economy” mean anything to you? The Vatican hopes it does. We are urged to promote such an economy which aims to end the over-exploitation of productive resources, looking towards their long-term maintenance so that resources can be re-used.  It is those living in the poorest countries who are most harmed by over-exploitation. They could be the beneficiaries, as well as us, of investment in technological innovation, sustainable infrastructures and a growth in resource productivity.

  • Let’s all learn more about how to achieve a “circular economy” and then lobby for change.

Support the Season of Creation

The Season of Creation runs from September 1st until October 4th, the Feast of St Francis.

Pope Francis calls us to keep the Season of Creation at this time of year. He asks us to focus on the message of ‘Laudato Si’, his important letter published five years ago reminding the whole human family to be aware of our responsibility to care for our common home. 

Now the lessons of this document need to be implemented in our thinking and acting in our personal lives, our community life and in the life of the global family. It calls us to ecological conversion and to see how our lives are connected with and affect the health and welfare of our world. We are using up the earth’s resources and our actions are affecting the climate and future of the earth. It especially affects the lives of our poorest brothers and sisters.

So let us try to implement in a serious and practical way the measures needed to ensure the future of our common home. Each one of us has a part to play through prayer, reflection and concrete actions. We must support and encourage one another in this. 

Father Gerry Murray, Sacred Heart parish priest.

A Prayer for Care of Creation

Creator God, who made our beautiful world,
appointed us as its guardians
and gifted us with everything we need,
forgive us
for the times we cause it harm;
for the times our way of life
affects our neighbours.

Inspire us
to care for the environment;
to help rebuild lives and communities;
to share in the griefs and anxieties,
joys and hopes of all your people,
so that all your creation may flourish.
Amen.

Support Fairtrade Week

Fairtrade Week runs from February 24th to 28th, 2020.

Fair Trade.jpg

How familiar are you with this symbol? Do you look for it when you shop?

The Fairtrade Foundation is a UK-based charity that works to empower disadvantaged producers in developing countries by tackling injustice in conventional trade, in particular by promoting and licensing the Fairtrade Mark, a guarantee that products retailed in the UK have been produced in accordance with internationally-agreed Fairtrade standards. 2019 marked 25 years since the first certified Fairtrade products became available in the UK.  They are now to be found widely in our supermarkets, specialist stores and online. 

So, job done?  www.Fairtrade.org.uk says not.  They say that Fairtrade is an evolving system committed to learning how the approach can improve to make a bigger difference for farmer and worker communities in developing countries.

Their research highlights areas where Fairtrade needs to do better and deliver deeper impact for farmers and workers. These include progressing faster towards a living wage in their Standards, doing more to extend Fairtrade’s core work to farm workers, empowering women farmers and workers, tackling power imbalances in supply chains, building effective climate change resilience within communities and scaling up their work within countries. 

Why buy Fairtrade? Find out more here.

What can we do? 

  • Insist that your favoured supermarket stocks Fairtrade products – and then buy them.  
  • Challenge stores such as Sainsbury’s, in the past a leader in its promotion of Fairtrade products, when they propose moving to their own “fairly traded” arrangements with producers.  The international Fairtrade system can only work and improve if all major product vendors support it. If they do, sales volumes will help bring shop prices down while safeguarding and improving the incomes of producers.  
  • You have a voice!

Living Simply – Waste Not

Statistics on how much each of us wastes from food to energy to other consumables are alarming.  So, the phrase to keep front of mind this quarter is “don’t waste”. Set yourself a target to drastically reduce the amount of waste being consigned to your blue, black and green bins – you’ll know you are making progress when that goes down.

Scrunchy and stretchy... Sainsbury’s shoppers should be aware that you can now recycle stretchy plastics such as bread loaf wrappers, which cannot go into your blue bin, in special bins at the supermarket. The bins gave way to carol singers at Christmas but should be back now – if not ask Customer Service why not. And foil recyclers be aware that foil needs to be scrunched into tennis-ball size pieces to be recycled successfully. Smaller pieces may not be captured by recycling machines.

Live Sustainably..clothing

WRAP, the Waste and Resources Action Programme, has reported on the outcome of a four-year pan-European programme to tackle sustainable clothing and influence positive action in the entire supply chain, under the title “Driving circular fashion and textiles.” If you are a fashionista or just buy clothes occasionally it is worth checking out their report which looks at pilot projects by manufacturers to recover and turn fibres into new garments through remanufacture, seeking to reduce use of virgin materials, conserve water and energy and reduce amounts going to landfill or incineration. The initiative also saw a number of European brands and retailers run pilot schemes to source more sustainable fibres to reduce the impact of clothing produced and sold within the European market. www.wrap.org.uk

The Fairtrade Foundation has issued a challenge to supporters to go further in 2020 by pledging to do more.

Complete an online form and they will email you tips to help you improve your performance.

Live Simply – Autumn Newsletter 2019

LIVE SIMPLY SO THAT OTHERS MIGHT SIMPLY LIVE

Living Simply 

It’s getting chillier. Heating will be on now in most households but at what temperature and what cost? Keep warm but try to save precious energy. Aim for a temperature during waking hours when at home of 20°C and turn heating off or much lower during sleeping hours. 

Rugby Town Centre may have a diminishing appeal in terms of conventional shopping but the success of St Andrew’s monthly Sustainable Saturdays and their Repair Cafe; the opening of Rugby Unwrapped; local craft shops and the twice-weekly market are all initiatives encouraging us to tweak our lifestyles and think about living more simply. 

Live Sustainably

The fight against plastic is being waged on many fronts. Friends of the Earth offers a helpful Living Without Plastic feature on its website. Link here: https://friendsoftheearth.uk/plastics/living-without-plastic  

Tips include avoiding liquid shower gels and hand washes which come in plastic containers by using soap instead – but make it natural soap, that is chemical and palm oil free. Yes, it costs a bit more but it lasts and there is no single-use plastic packaging.

Recycle your crisp packets at St Andrew’s Church, Rugby.

Crisp packets are among several items which cannot be recycled via our blue bins. Terracycle has become a popular route to addressing this and other recycling challenges. St Andrew’s Church has adopted a Terracycle scheme to recycle Walkers Crisps packets. They are happy for people to add a single empty Walkers Crisp packet to their collection or a bundle. Just drop them in to the church next time you are in town. To learn more about Terracycle, go to this web address https://www.terracycle.com/en-GB/brigades.

Live In Solidarity

CAFOD highlights as part of its “Our Common Home” campaign, the dangers faced by those around the world who speak up. It says: “Criminalisation, death threats, and the killing of human rights defenders is increasing, especially in Latin America. These courageous people face huge daily risks to protect land and natural resources for poor landless communities to thrive. These people are also on the frontline of protecting our common home, a home we all share.  It is these defenders who are responding most acutely to ‘the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor’ and at the greatest personal cost.”

The support we provide with via our regular giving to CAFOD and around Fast Days is vital in helping these people.  How much more could we help by becoming better acquainted with their stories and by campaigning for them through our Government channels. Be informed, as well as generous – and act.
