Living simply at St John’s Cathedral.
Pope Francis has declared September 1st as "WORLD DAY OF PRAYER FOR THE CARE OF CREATION” and September 6 is the first anniversary of the Parish Livesimply Award. To mark both events, Canon Paul will be blessing the statue of St Francis of Assisi in the Cathedral’s Garden of Contemplation after the 11am Mass on Sunday 2 September. Come and join us in celebration and prayer for our world.
In the meantime, the parish continues to involve our children’s groups in concern for others and the care of God’s creation; to support the Backpack Project and the Foodbank; to recycle spectacles, ink cartridges and mobile phones; to encourage walkers; to maintain a sustainable garden etc. Pretty much what we said we would do!
