Want to discover how you can counter consumerism with CAFOD?

Countering consumerism

In today’s busy world in can be difficult to get lost in our own lives and fall into the trap of misguided consumerism whilst neglecting the call to be holy.

But here at CAFOD Leeds – we have the answer.

Our series of retreats across the country titled “Countering Consumerism” will show you how to avoid these pitfalls and make the changes to honour God in the 21st Century.

Be inspired by Pope Francis, and his new letter Gaudete et Exsultate (Rejoice and Be Glad) – allow the words of the Gospel to shake up your life and broaden a mindset that can be restricted by the expectations of a fast paced, materialistic society.

Environmental issues are the most crucial for our generation to solve, with throwaway culture dictating our purchases and plastic polluting our oceans, come together with CAFOD to explore Scripture and discover what we can do to live simply with each other under Church teaching.

The retreats are free of charge and all are very welcome.
