2015 is a very important year for the Church and the wider world with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (post Millennium Development Goals) being launched in September and the key UN Climate Change talks in Paris in December and Pope Francis’ long awaited encyclical on integral development and creation due to be released possibly this summer. CAFOD is working hard to ensure 2015 is a success for our brothers and sisters in the global south and that the deals reached can lead to a world were all people can flourish and live life to the full and where creation is protected for future generations around the world.
On June 17th, join thousands of people for a day of action and celebration as we speak to our MPs and tell them why fighting climate change matters to us.
CAFOD Plymouth has kindly offered to help cover the cost of transport of getting to the event for a limited number of people. Speak to Damien for more info.
There’ll be workshops, music, entertainment and a rally finale – bring your friends to speak up for the things you love that could be lost to climate change!
This will be the biggest ever UK MP climate lobby, and the first mass lobby of the new government. Let’s not lose what we love to climate change, just because no one knew we cared.
Together we can witness to new government how much we care for our brothers and sisters around the world and our concern that Climate Change is pushing them deeper into poverty. Please do pray and reflect on whether you can join CAFOD to add your voice at this crucial lobby and ensure that our MPs hear and take action to protect our sisters and brothers in the global south. Please feel free to encourage your friends to come and join us.

Over the last few weeks there been quite a few changes to our site and blog (as well as a few problems).
The following is a list of major changes that have happened, I would also like if you do find a problems please let me know so I can fix it. There is a good change that their might be a few bugs left to sort out.
We were running 2 website and blogs (with the beta run in the folder /site/) while we test and made sure everything was working and how we wanted it.
Please to say the new blog and website worked well and soon became the main area of activity. As it was working fine and we liked how it looked. We have now moved it to the root/main area replacing the old site and blog.
If you booked marked a blog page just edit the URL to remove site/ and it should work, for the main site we hope to set up some redirects where possible.
Unfortunately no longer support word press and come June 23 ability to post, comment, like and more would come to an end. We therefore have bitten the bullet and removed it from the blog. You will still be able to share an article but no like it or comment on it through Facebook. In the future hopefully this will change.
We have set both the blog and the main site to use HTTP (encrypted) this will help improve security for both the visitor and us. However if you are using XP and an outdated version of internet explorer you may experience problems. If so please either update internet explorer or use a different web browser.
There were many other changes and new features most which are next to invisible, but to give you an idea the new site and blog can not do
