Comment Email Print
 A talk given in Clifton Cathedral last Friday, on the relationship between the Catholic Church and environment has won worldwide praise. In 'The Pope and the Iceberg' Mary Colwell, a producer in the BBC Natural History Unit in Bristol, laid down a challenge for the Catholic Church to take a leading role in promoting a sustainable and diverse world. Film from the unit's archives was projected onto the walls of the Cathedral during the powerful presentation. Since the event, many words of praise and congratulations have been received by both Mary and the Clifton Diocese. The Bishop of Clifton, Right Reverend Declan Lang said: "Mary's talk was fascinating and challenging. I think that our relationship with the environment is an important question for all of us to face in this coming century. It is matter of justice and an issue for peace. I was very pleased that we were able to host this event in Clifton Cathedral and that it has been received so positively." Mary has now accepted an invitation to take part at the Earthcare Conference held by the Catholic Bishops of Australia in November. She will also be speaking at the National Justice and Peace Fieldworkers Conference and delivering keynote addresses at other events. She has also been interviewed on Vatican Radio, BBC Radio Bristol and several local radio stations around the country. The text of 'The Pope & the Iceberg' is available from the Clifton Diocese website:
