What an amazing day we all had on Wednesday 26th in London when a group of us from CAFOD Clifton travelled to London to lobby our MPS on Climate Change.
The commitment, passion and sincerity – as well as many happy faces! – of the CAFOD Clifton volunteers was fantastic, in relation to an issue that is not just incredibly urgent due to what is happening to our planet, but as with all the issues CAFOD is a part of, the effect it is having on our poorest brothers and sisters around the world.
A quick summation of some of the facts and figures from the London Lobby; over 300 MPs met with their constituents on the day, there were around 12,000 people there – and we found out some fun facts about each other, especially when we were playing icebreaker games on the coach on the way to London!!
The key question from everyone at the end of the day, was what to do next. CAFOD is suggesting running a Creation Celebration mass in your parish. See here for all the info on running one, and /or contact Liz Baldwin, CAFOD Clifton Community Participation Coordinator: firstname.lastname@example.org
Again, thanks to everyone so much – a fantastically successful day!
