STILL TIME TO MAKE THIS A GREEN LENT
There are still several weeks of Lent to go. Every day the headlines carry something more about climate change, pollution and other environmental challenges.
We all need to change, to use less, recycle more, make our voices heard.
The Pope has called on all of us to an ecological conversion. So take another step this Lent. Walk more, cut down on plastic.
Take part in the next parish litter clean up for an hour on Sat March 10th next at 11.00h. And why not join the Parish Environmental Group, (next meeting to be announced in the Parish Bulletin)?.
