CAFOD and Live Simply
Recently the Cafod team have, with Fr Rob’s support, taken the decision to work towards becoming a LiveSimply Community. Our primary school, St Dunstan’s, has already achieved the LiveSimply award so many families will be familiar with this.
The LiveSimply award is an opportunity for Catholic communities to respond to Pope Francis’ invitation in Laudato Si’ to “work with generosity and tenderness in protecting this world which God has entrusted to us”. (quoted from the Cafod website).
As a Parish, we hope to work together to show that its members are striving to follow a more simple lifestyle, to live in solidarity with people in poverty and live more sustainably with creation.
Take a look at our Advent calendar, which has a different suggestion each day for living a greener and more climate friendly lifestyle. You can access this calendar using the following link:

A special Station Mass for all those who have died this year
The last twelve months have been challenging for people across our community, particularly those who have been bereaved during the Covid-19 pandemic, or before.
Many of us have found it difficult to get to Church through the various lockdowns, to sit with the Lord, share our thoughts and find comfort in His embrace. Those who have lost someone may also have been unable to be with their families and friends, with limited numbers of people able to attend funerals in person. Join Bishop Richard as he offers Mass for our intentions, our friends and our loved ones who have died.
