CAFOD Climate Change Petition

On Sunday 1 September the Justice and Peace group, with support from Bronagh at CAFOD Leeds, organised a Creation Mass to celebrate the beauty of God’s creation and to highlight the threats to our planet. After Mass we had an inter-generational discussion where older members of the congregation shared their experiences with the enthusiasm of youth. Inspired by fourteen year old Ben, a group of us went litter picking on Sunday 15 September around Skipton and collected several bulging bags of rubbish.
