Testing CAFOD’s Laudato si' - On the Care for our Common Home
New reflective resource
On Wednesday 3rd May
after coffee following the 10am Mass
at the Church of the Holy Family & St Michael’s, Kesgrave
you are invited to stay for 1 hour to take part in one reflective session and to look briefly at this New CAFOD resource and to provide some feedback for CAFOD.
All are welcome to come along
Laudato si' - On the Care for our Common Home is the Pope's Encyclical Letter on the environment and human ecology. Pope Francis challenges us to consider the kind of world we want to leave to those who come after us. It's not just an 'environment encyclical', it leads us to ask ourselves about the meaning of existence and the values at the heart of social life: "What is the purpose of our life in this world? What is the goal of our work and all our efforts? What need does the earth have of us?"
