We are encouraging Catholics all over the UK to organise a public meeting with other parishioners to engage their local MPs in climate crisis and social justice issues.
Book your place on our free training course on Saturday 10th April from 11.00am-12.30pm, where you will learn the step-by-step process on how to lobby your MP in support of CAFOD’s Reclaim Our Common Home campaign.
The training session will cover:
Faith and community participation: why it matters
How to set up a meeting with your local MP
The key elements of successfully promoting an event
The secret of not being put off by technology and run an engaging webinar
The challenges of facilitating an online meeting and how to address them
How to commit your MP to taking action
The ‘Reclaim our Common Home’ campaign and why its three demands are vital
We have been delighted by the compassion and determination people have shown by Walking for Water in solidarity with Abdella this Lent.
Thank you to all you who have put on your walking shoes, tied up your green laces and hit the road – and thanks to all of you who have sponsored them. If you haven’t done so yet, it’s not too late and would give a real boost to the walkers if you could help them reach their target.
And finally, a big happy, Walk for Water Birthday goes to Pat Bishop who turns 100 on Palm Sunday. Please share her page and support her if you can. Pat, you’re an inspiration!
We have never been more aware of our interconnectedness, with each other, and with our common home, Earth.
Through our Continuing Professional Development course (CPD), you will be inspired to bring this commitment to the common good to life, with activities, techniques and resources that can be used directly in the classroom.
Until July 2021, CAFOD is able to offer free CPD to schools, supported by the British Council, either online or face to face where appropriate.
These courses enable Catholic schools to have global justice at the heart of all they do. They give staff an opportunity to come together (including virtually, and from home if necessary) and plan how this can be brought to life within a school.
This global justice CPD is rooted in Catholic Social Teaching and is a good way to respond to Pope Francis’ invitation “to see, to choose, and to act”.
