St Josephs Action on Climate and the Environment The Next Stage
How have we , as a parish, responded to Laudato Si?
How have we responded to the climate emergency news?
Having launched our campaign on the environment we will now be forming an online group, so if you are interested and haven’t yet done so, please give us your name and email address. These will be passed on to Julie McCulloch.
As part of the Live Simply award we need to develop a Living Simply Parish Action Plan. Suggestions can be emailed to Julie via the parish office. The action plan will then be written and submitted to CAFOD for approval. The aim is that this plan will be finalized and submitted for approval. These will be published on the Weekend of April 25/26th (hopefully!!) Living Simply in the Light of the Resurrection when we will look at how we build on our Lenten challenges and commitments.
How far did we get, looking at the Live Simply 100 ideas.?
Online resources are available at: livesimplyaward.org.uk
Lenten Challenges: a few suggestions; Go vegetarian two days a week, Have two 'car free' days a week, Reduce shower time to 5 minutes, Look at ways of reducing heating bills, Decide to find out more about climate change
and learn how to live simply.
These are just suggestions, you do not have to do one of these, you can make your own Lenten promise! When you have decided on your Lenten challenge post a note on the new notice board in the hall to inspire others. Pick up a posting card from the church.
