CHURCH ACTION ON POVERTY


Tackling food poverty together: you're invited to a campaign briefing 

Church Action on Poverty is pleased to invite you to a briefing for the new End Hunger campaign
Do you share a vision of a Britain in which everyone has access to good food and no one need go to bed hungry?
Do you think that children should be able to live free from the damaging impacts of hunger on their health, attainment and opportunity?
Do you believe that families should be able to afford good food on a regular basis through an appropriate combination of work and benefits?
Do you want to live in a country in which no one needs to go hungry, because the safety net provides us all with the protection we need in time of crisis?
Do you want to be part of a powerful national campaign to make this happen?
Following on from previous ‘Right to Good Food’ events in November, come to find out more about plans for a major national ‘End Hunger UK’ campaign, being jointly planned by an emerging alliance of national organisations including Church Action on Poverty, Oxfam, Sustain, Trussell Trust, Fareshare, Magic Breakfast and Child Poverty Acton Group.
Hear more about the campaign, meet with other people from the region who share your views, and find out how you can get involved.
There are two briefings in the region - choose the one that suits you best, and click on the link below to book your place:

JUST FOR THE LADIES


REFUGEE WEEK

You may have heard the story of Sicilian carpenter Francesco Tuccio. He made rough crosses from the wreckage of a boat carrying refugees that sank near his home on the island of Lampedusa. He offered these crosses to survivors as a symbol of their rescue and a sign of hope. One of his crosses was recently carried through the great Door of Mercy at St Peter’s basilica.

CAFOD has offered Lampedusa crosses to every Cathedral in England and Wales, including St. Marie’s Cathedral, Sheffield, to display as a focus for reflection.

Inspired by the Lampedusa cross, and during this Year of Mercy, Catholics across England and Wales are sending messages of hope to refugees. CAFOD, Caritas Social Action Network and Jesuit Refugee Service will then be sharing these messages with refugees from around the world.

We respond to this crisis in a spirit of hope and common humanity. As Pope Francis reminds us, “We ourselves need to see, and then enable others to see, that migrants and refugees are brothers and sisters to be welcomed, respected and loved.”

Refugee Week Event

Forced out by war, poverty or persecution, millions of people live uncertain lives as migrants and refugees. But each of us, moved by faith and common humanity, can act in welcome, respect and love. You are invited to take part in our Year of Mercy reflection on Thursday 23 June at St. Hugh’s at 7 pm. For more information contact:
