Pope Francis Laudato Si’ encyclical puts the emphasis on Care for Our Common Home:
Cry of the Earth and Cry of the Poor. This is rapidly becoming an important part of our lives here at Emmaus we were able during the first lock down to undertake on-line training direct from the source in Rome. As a result we set up a group who meet regularly to share and discern what actions, however small, we can undertake.
From this emerged the educational work with Children’s groups as well as the Elderly and their Carers. We even attempted a beach clean up along Sand Bay near WsM when the tide was out! Recently one off our group was at COP26 in Glasgow and will be reporting back on the groundswell of support she saw daily going on around her.
If anyone, (particularly if you live fairly locally) would like to know a little more about this gathering do get in touch. There are similar groups growing all over the country (indeed round the world) who feel drawn to discerning the right actions that need to be taken.
With this in mind then, a number of our days (or mornings) will have an emphasis on care of creation: the earth and all its peoples. You might like to be part of this and would be very welcome to join.
