Our path to becoming an eco-aware parish began when Pope Francis’s letter, Laudato Si’, became an issue for discussion at one of our Parish Pastoral Council meetings. It was agreed that care for creation become a specific ministry in the parish. Subsequently, a group of interested people gathered together and so the journey began.

Over the past two years small but significant steps were taken, and at each stage, a report of these activities sent to ECI. As a result, we received our first certificate, Awareness Certificate and then the Endeavour Certificate in March 2020.

Despite lockdown, work continued and on receiving our last application for the final audit, ECI informed us that we are now an eco-aware parish. The visit of the ECI assessors could not take place due to COVID 19 restrictions. However, as soon as circumstances allow, we look forward to welcoming the assessors to our Sunday liturgy. We know that their encouragement will confirm us in our desire to live as an eco-aware community, recalling Pope Francis’s statement:

“Love, overflowing with small gestures of mutual care, is also civic and political, and makes itself felt in every action that seeks to build a better world” (LS 231)

Events in February 2022

  • 2nd February
    World Wetlands Day

    2nd February 2022 is the first year that World Wetlands Day will be observed as a United Nations international day, following its adoption by the General Assembly on 30th August 2021.

    The theme for the 2022 edition is Wetlands Action for People and Nature and it highlights the importance of actions that ensure that wetlands are conserved and sustainably used. It’s an appeal to invest financial, human and political capital to save the world’s wetlands from disappearing and to restore those we have degraded.
