We are inviting CAFOD supporters from the Diocese of Leeds to join with our friends from the dioceses of Shrewsbury, Liverpool, Lancaster and Salford in Manchester to mark the launch of the climate campaign. We are very pleased to welcome Bishop Terence Brain of Salford Diocese to our event
The event takes place on the eve of the Labour Party Conference in Manchester. We will hear a reflection on Kenya and Sustainable Energy by Catherine McKinnell MP.
The programme for the afternoon includes sessions from members of CAFOD’s Campaign Team, Eilidh Macpherson and Maria Elena Arana, as well as from Sarah Wykes, CAFOD’s Senior Analyst on Climate Change and Energy. There’ll be an opportunity for a community action and photo with the Bishop and the MPs and time for reflection and questions too.
At the end of the day, there is the option to go to Mass at The Hidden Gem (St Mary’s), a beautiful small Catholic Church, minutes away from our meeting place. Mass starts at 5.15pm.
Please email Leeds@cafod.org.uk if you are planning on attending.
