Climate fair, school meals campaign and bishop visit

Latest news of interest to the East Anglia Catholic community includes a Climate and Sustainability Fair in Norfolk, a Mary’s Meals campaign and a special visit to Bishop Peter.

The churches of Sheringham including St Joseph’s RC, along with the local town council and other interested local groups, are holding a Climate and Sustainability Fair on Saturday April 20 from 10am till 3pm. The event is being held at St Andrews Methodist Church just across from St Joseph’s, and will include a number of educational stalls, talks, art exhibitions, and a choir. CAFOD is attending to promote ‘Live Simply’ and its associated principles, and the whole event will help people understand what we can do as individuals and communities to lower our impact on the climate, and help the environment recover.

There are free refreshments and an LED light bulb free for our first 100 visitors.

Mary’s Meals, which provides school meals to over 2.4 million children every day, invite you to join its Pray in May campaign.

“During the month of May, we invite you to join us in praying for the hungry children who rely on our life-changing school meals, and for all the children and families around the world who live in poverty, “ said Jane Wright, Supporter Engagement Officer (East Midlands & East England). “We pray particularly for families facing extreme food insecurity and hunger in Ethiopia. We are hosting a special online session where our founder Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow will share more about this under-reported crisis on Tuesday April 16 at 7pm.”
