We provide a weekly ‘CAFOD fact’ as a short ‘Did You Know?’ to parishes across the Lancaster Diocese, which they print in their parish newsletters. If you would be interested in receiving this weekly email, let us know at CAFOD Lancaster and we’ll send it directly to you too – email: firstname.lastname@example.org
“Did you know…… the UN climate report, launched this week by the world’s leading climate experts, supports CAFOD’s experiences that the world’s poorest communities are being hardest hit by climate change? It says: global warming is happening here, now and affecting people on all continents. It is not a distant problem that will only affect generations to come in faraway places. We have the means to end poverty within our lifetimes, but not if we don’t tackle climate change by cutting our emissions and helping poor people to cope with its impacts.”
CAFOD is part of The Climate Coalition, the UK’s largest group of organisations dedicated to taking action on the issue, and will be campaigning from 2014 onwards on climate change.If you want to be kept up to date on our campaigns news, and find out easy ways to do your part, sign up for our campaigning news.
“Take good care of creation. People occasionally forgive, but nature never does. If we don’t take care of the environment, there’s no way of getting around it.” (Pope Francis)
