In 2015, Pope Francis published his ground-breaking letter on the environment Laudato Si’. Since then, millions of people worldwide have joined the global movement to address the environmental crisis our world is facing. This Lent, we are inviting YOU to join us for a series of reflective evenings with inspiring speakers, prayer and discussion, using the film-based resource “Global Healing”. These engaging documentaries will inform and challenge people to respond to Pope Francis’ call to Care for Our Common Home. Suitable for all who are concerned about what is happening to our world and who want to take action.
When? Six Thursdays from 18th February – 25th March 2021, 7.30pm – 8.30pm
How to join? To register please click HERE or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Hosted by GCCM Laudato Si’ Animators in the UK.
“Living our vocation to be protectors of God’s handiwork is essential to a life of virtue; it is not an optional or secondary aspect of our Christian experience…Truly, much can be done!” (Laudato Si’, 217, 180)

Lent Bible Study Groups 2021
Last year lockdown in March meant most groups only managed to meet for a couple of weeks. It was agreed to keep the study guide for this year – optimistically hoping we would be back to normal! As meeting in homes isn’t possible it has been decided to run them on Zoom, meeting for one hour. The study guide will be the same. For those who took part before you will probably have very different views on the passages after the experiences of this unusual past year! If you didn’t take part last year it will be fresh to you. The guide is one of the Cover to Cover series Living Faith: invitations from the cross by Krish Kandiah.
The groups this year are:
St Mark’s Mondays at 2pm;
Tilehouse St Tuesdays at 2pm;
Our Lady’s Wednesdays at 2.30pm; (Led by Trish Bonnett)
Holy Saviour Thursdays at 10.30 am.
Lent groups begin and continue weekly from Monday 22 February to Good Friday.
