Climate films, parish vacancy, Bible online chance

Latest news from across the Diocese of East Anglia includes a Catholic climate movement film, a parish vacancy in Newmarket and a Bible livestream event.

A movement which grew out of Laudato Si’, the letter from Pope Francis on the environment, is organising an Lenten film event called ‘Global Healing’.

Since the encyclical appeared in 2015, millions of people worldwide have joined a global movement to address the environmental crisis. This Lent there will be a series of reflective evenings with inspiring speakers, prayer and discussion.

These documentaries will inform and challenge people to respond to Pope Francis’ call to Care for Our Common Home.

The films will run on six Thursdays from February 18 to March 25, from 7.30pm to 8.30pm.
