CLIMATE CHANGE & CARING FOR OUR COMMON HOME:

“I have been invited by CAFOD to be one of their representatives at the climate change conference in Silesia, Poland (COP24) in December.
I was last in Silesia 40 years ago at a scientific conference on the effects of sulphur dioxide pollution on forestry.
It is sobering to think that the greenhouse effect and climate change were hardly on the radar of pollution scientists at that time.
Sulphur dioxide, nitrogen oxide and ozone were seen as the overriding problems. We have changed the world's climate so quickly ! ”
Stephen Garsed

SHARE THE JOURNEY
Many thanks to all parishioners who have supported refugees by walking and signing cards.
So far OLSE members have walked 1518 miles and signed 84 cards to the Prime Minister.
Keep those miles coming and lets try and make it 100 cards.
Please return completed cards to the box at the back of church, where there are also some spares and some walk recording slips. Stephen Garsed

TAKING STEPS TO END A LIFE !

Our Supreme Court has judged that it is not unlawful to kill people by taking food and drink away from them. Yet the intention is to end their lives sooner than would otherwise happen. We can have all sorts of “kindly” motives, but in doing so we judge that a patient’s life should be ended. A ‘patient’ is a person. If we allow ourselves to choose to end a person’s life, we have crossed a line into euthanasia by refusing to give basic natural sustenance to that person.
Such a massive decision is not for a few judges – it is for a nation’s Parliament. (See Tablet, 4th August)
We should contact our MPs and the government to protest this, loud and strong. For many of us, the MP is wallaceb@parliament.com , (or write to Mr. Ben Wallace, MP, House of Commons, London.) Give your address and postcode to prove you’re a constituent. If in another constituency, search for your MP online.

SEPTEMBER

Sunday, 2nd Sept.
ANNUAL CLEATOR PILGRIMAGE
The principal celebrant and preacher will be Bishop Paul Swarbrick. This year’s theme: Our Lady, Queen of Peace. In the grounds at Cleator, (West Cumbria) we have a beautiful replica of the Lourdes grotto, and also statues of the Cure of Ars and St Therese of Lisieux. The pilgrimage will be an opportunity not only to honour Mary the Mother of God, but also these two great saints, and to ask their intercession for healing and peace. Long journey, but rewarding!

As usual we invite the young people, age 16+, to walk in pilgrimage from Honister across Haystacks into Ennerdale. The walk is about 10 miles each day and concludes with the diocesan Mass at Cleator at 3pm.
Young people : to join the walk contact Fr John at Castlerigg – https://castleriggmanoryouth.squarespace.com/
