Climate Change and the Common Good

The call to "Ecological Conversion".

We all know that the world is in danger because of climate change.

Pope Francis called us to account in Laudato si' (Praise be to you) - the encyclical, or teaching letter he addressed to the people of the world in 2015. In this document he links concern for the earth with concern for the poor and most vulnerable people of the world.

Saint Mary's Justice and Peace Group warmly invites you to join them in a study of Laudato si'. The programme of study begins on Thursday 12th September, and will run for a series of ten weekly sessions, each of which will be held in Saint Mary's Parish Centre, between 7:00pm and 8:30pm. Each session is free of charge, and everyone is welcome to attend.

For more information, please contact the Justice & Peace Group by emailing justiceandpeace@stmaryshexham.org.uk or by telephoning 07895 434344.

Copies of Laudato si' may be ordered via Saint Mary's Parish Office, or can be downloaded free from the Vatican website.
