Welcome to the Sacred Heart Activities and Resources on Environment (SHARE) webpage!
We believe that responding to climate change is an essential part of our responsibility and duty as Christians to safeguard God’s creation. Our environmental campaign exists to enable the whole church to address — in faith, practice and mission — the issue of climate change. Please read the ENCYCLICAL LETTER LAUDATO SI’ OF THE HOLY FATHER FRANCIS ON CARE FOR OUR COMMON HOME for more details.
There are many different ways to tackle climate change, either individually or in a group, and one effective way is campaigning for change. If we don’t act now to reduce our pollution and environmental impact, many more people could be at risk of losing their livelihoods and everything they cherish.
The development of western society since the industrial revolution has led to numerous benefits, making our lives easier in so many ways. However, we are learning more and more about the environmental consequences of our modern lifestyles, and so this webpage is being set up for sharing information that can help us take greater responsibility for our impact on the environment.
We are here to help you take action on the environment. Amazing work is already taking place in churches across the country and we are well placed to share news, tips and resources. The SHARE group aims to increase our community’s engagement with environmental issues by providing information and guidance on the 6 following topics:
- Waste Management
- Nature & Biodiversity
