Clifton Cathedral to host day on Catholicism and the natural world
Comment Email Print
¬†Mary Colwell a parishioner at Clifton Cathedral and top BBC natural history producer has put together an exciting interactive programme for a day exploring the Catholic Church and the environment. From 10am to 4pm on 3 March, people are invited to come to the Apostle Room at Clifton Cathedral on Pembroke Road in Bristol to take part. Mary Colwell said; "We are facing big issues with no easy answers and I think it is important to get people thinking big from a Christian perspective. "Changing to energy efficient light bulbs is essential, but Christianity and the environment is so much bigger than the practicalities - it is the huge issue of how our lives relate to the world which is ultimately what we need to reflect upon within the context of faith." "I would love the day to be challenging, thought-provoking but ultimately hopeful." Mary colleagues and contacts, specialising in different environmental aspects, will be taking part in the event by facilitating group discussions. The group discussions will focus on extinctions, waste, big business, population, development, and is Christianity to blame? The groups will led by Phil Chapman a financial advisor and Clifton Cathedral parishioner, George Ferzoco a lecturer at Leicester University, Carolyn Meussig a theology lecturer at the University of Bristol and Julian Partridge a zoology lecturer at the University of Bristol. The cost is just £10 and £5 for concessions with funds going to the Cathedral parish project. The day is suitable for people over 14.
