JOURNEY TO 2030 ‘The Earth, our home, is beginning to look more and more like an immense pile of filth,’ Pope Francis Laudato Si’. The Diocesan Education Service, CAFOD and Caritas recently held an event looking at how individuals, schools and parishes can respond to Pope Francis’ call to put Laudato Si’, into action to help our communities thrive, at the same time as tackling huge world issues on the Journey to 2030. The issues can feel daunting but small steps are so important – the little things do add up! There is a new website https://journeyto2030.org/ which offers a parish guide to Laudato Si’ and an our online encyclopaedia for individuals and parishes trying to respond to the Pope’s teaching on care for our common home, pulling together inspiring stories and practical actions, wisdom and goals in one place. There are also lots of resources on our Diocesan website https://www.plymouth-diocese.org.uk/the-diocese/how-we-work/environment/. If you would like any more information on environmental issues please contact caritas@prcdtr.org.uk
