Thank you for the pledge sheets returned – 16 so far. We will be able to highlight common actions in due course, but following on from the recent bad news about Climate Change it is noticeable that many of us are trying to only buy things we need and can fully use. And having at least one meat-free day a week got a lot of votes too.

This week’s tip: we can substantially reduce our carbon footprint by buying less meat, especially from intensive rearing that has required vast amounts of feedstock produced and transported from good arable land. Look for locally grown food whenever possible. (21/10/18)

Memorial of Mary, Mother of the Church
added to liturgical calendar . . .
 On Saturday 3rd March 2018, the Vatican announced Pope Francis’ decision that the Church celebrate the Blessed Virgin Mary in her role as “Mother of 
the Church” every year on the Monday after Pentecost, as a way to foster Marian piety and the maternal sense of the Church.
