Love In Action

Living the message of the Gospels in practical and effective ways is a key part of our Catholic faith. This work is led by the Love in Action group which has a broad brief and works with other parish groups and the local community in Brentwood and Warley.

Many members of our Parish community have continued to reach out to others throughout the current restrictions. They have been helping to support the life of the Cathedral Community by acting as stewards in the Cathedral and helping to keep the Cathedral open both for daily prayer and Masses. They have also been helping those in most need by cooking for the homeless and helping out in their local neighbourhood.

Great Big Green Week

GREAT BIG GREEN WEEK – is taking place in the parish from 10th – 18th June and you are asked to think how you can care for our common home. Here are some ideas! 

 

  • Walk to Mass on 17/18 June. Leave the car at home (if you able) and cut your emissions by walking, cycling, taking a bus or car sharing.

     

  • Walk to School or Work. One day that week make a change to your usual routine and walk/cycle/car share a route you might otherwise drive.

     

  • Recycling. Bring a water bottle/reusable cup with you when you’re out and about and so avoid buying single use plastics.

     

  • Food. Look out for locally produced food where it is available, such as British strawberries, and try cutting meat out of one or two of your meals that week. 

 

Once you’ve thought about what you might do, please sign up to the GREAT BIG GREEN pledge (sign-up sheets in the Narthex) to share how you will be caring for our common home. It’s a great opportunity to get the children involved!

Green Guardians

This social action project, formed under the Love in Action umbrella, is a response to Pope Francis’s Laudato Si which calls us to care for our common home. Pope Francis asks us to reflect on the world around us and to open our eyes and see how God is present throughout creation. It is also important that we take responsibility for our actions now, because their consequences will have a long-lasting effect on future generations. Thus, the Green Guardians is a group that is committed to caring for our common home.
