Ellen Teague reported for The Tablet on our ‘Living Laudato Si’ zoom evening:

“On Monday evening day Westminster Justice and Peace and CAFOD Westminster organised a zoom meeting of around 60 activists in the diocese who have been inspired by Laudato Si’. Livesimply parishes in Cockfosters, Hitchen, New Barnet and Pimlico described initiatives ranging from Walk to Church Sundays, becoming fair trade parishes, planting a garden for bees, to parishioners making a Laudato Si’ pledge to live more simply and placing livesimply tips weekly in the parish newsletter. 

Fr Richard Nesbitt of White City Parish described a ‘Care for Creation’ fair held in a local park, and a pet blessing which included seven dogs, a cat and a pig! Clips from the Bishop’s Conference film resources of ‘Global Healing’ and ‘Global Caring’ were shown. Tony Sheen of CAFOD advertised the current CAFOD emergency appeal and a petition calling for the debts of the poorest countries to be cancelled as they cope with the coronavirus emergency.”
