Million Minutes invites us to join them for a webinar on how we support our young people post-lockdown on Wednesday 20th October at 7pm to discuss how we, as youth ministers, volunteers and parish communities, can support young people post-lockdown. This session will have input on current research, sharing of resources available, and opportunities for discussion and network-building.
The session aims to:
*Gain an understanding of how young people have been affected by the national lockdowns through examining research
*Discuss the support that we can offer as Catholic communities to young people over the coming months
*Be aware of the resources available to further enable our work
*Building our network through opportunities for discussion
This will be a live session and will not be recorded. You will receive a digital resource pack, including any presentation slides, following the session. Register now at: https://millionminutes.org/events/2021/youngpeoplepostlockdown
If you have any questions regarding the event, feel free to email Beth (Senior Parish Engagement Officer) at firstname.lastname@example.org
Clifton Climate Liturgy-Saturday October 23rd, 11.00am – led by Bishop Declan:
As Christians, we the stewards of God’s creation, have responsibility for our planet’s future. We have a unique opportunity very soon to prepare spiritually for the challenges and opportunities COP26 in November offers our world. The Climate Liturgy being led by Bishop Declan on Saturday, October 23 in the Cathedral, offers the chance to engage with the issues facing our planet through prayer and worship.
The Liturgy will be both a recognition of the work of organisations involved in the Climate Change Campaign in the Clifton Diocese, and an ongoing call and blessing by Bishop Declan for all to continue the action to protect God’s world.
Tackling climate change is literally a life-and-death issue, and the Liturgy also offers the opportunity to pray together that leaders at COP26 will have the courage to act before it is too late. To safeguard Creation and the lives of Brothers and Sisters who are already experiencing the very real cost of climate change, our UK Government needs to commit to, and see through bold targets at COP26, enabling both global and local change to be made.
Representatives from the organisations involved in the Campaign will be holding stalls after the Liturgy as an opportunity for engagement, dialogue and action. Come along on October 23, and be part of the mobilisation. Contact Liz Baldwin at CAFOD Clifton for any further details – email@example.com
