Season of Creation: September 1st until  October 4th (The Feast of St Francis of Assisi)
The day is inspired by Pope Francis' landmark encyclical Laudato Si’, which calls on "every person living on this planet" to care for our shared Earth.
He calls us all to celebrate this opportune moment to “reaffirm [our] personal vocation to be stewards of creation, to thank God for the wonderful handiwork which he has entrusted to our care, and to implore his help for the protection of creation, as well as his pardon for the sins committed against the world in which we live.”
CAFOD has suggestions for individuals and groups for participating in this world wide prayer.

Parish WhatsApp group. If you would like to join the group please email me(Aileen) and I will forward your mobile number to Barbara. (I do not like to advertise her number on the web, and the email address I am giving you is not my family/friends one).

FORTY DAYS FOR LIFE VIGIL will not take place in Leeds this year. Instead we aim to have a shorter vigil from 10am – 2pm between Wed Sept 23rd and Sun Nov 1st. Please consider praying at home or coming along to the Marie Stops Abortion Centre (Barrack Rd,. Leeds, LS7 4AB) to pray for and be a ‘voice for the voiceless’ unborn babies in danger of abortion.
