One World Week is back!

The popular International Dinner in Waterlooville

One World Week is round the corner once again! The popular week, which offers great opportunities for people from diverse backgrounds to come together to learn about global justice, takes place this year from 23 to 30 October. The theme is “Living for One World” and it is focusing on climate change—so it is also a fantastic opportunity to promote our Don’t drop the ball campaign!!

The One World Week website is as usual packed with resources and advice to organise a local event, including the popular Christian Worship Anthology.
And the most popular One World Week events in our Diocese are also coming back! The J&P group from Sacred Heart parish in Waterlooville is hosting once again the very popular International Dinner! This year it will take place on Friday 21 October at 7.30pm in the parish hall. There is room for 100 people, but tickets are always on demand, so make sure you book early! Tickets are £10 for a family and £4 for an adult. To book a place, please contact Philip Hayllar: philiphayllar@hotmail.com or 02392 251593. CAFOD materials and action cards will also be available!
