Climate Action Meeting: 16th September 7-9pm (online) DIOCESAN EVENT Join us in combating climate change. We have great strength and passion in our network, and we want to ask you to help us find ways to address the climate emergency together and to respond to Pope Francis’ call for an ecological conversion. The Archdiocese is increasing its conversion to green energy, and has committed to ethical investment. Parishes and schools have taken part in CAFOD Live Simply Awards. We are proud of this work, but we want to do more and to reach more people.
You are invited to join our initial open meeting, via Zoom, in which we will talk about the work we have done and what we wish to do, and where we will invite you to feedback, share your stories or simply add your support.
