Organised by our parish contact Rita Belletty, it is a very simple but effective initiative – one of the many that the parish is taking towards gaining the livesimply award. On a particular Sunday of the year (usually in the summer… in the hope of good weather!), parishioners who are able to are encouraged to leave their cars home and walk to church instead – as an effort to reduce their carbon footprint (and in the hope that, inspired by taking a nice Sunday morning walk, they might to do it again in the future!). This is a great idea that could be easily taken up by many other parishes.
This year’s poster is available here.
We wish the initiative every success!
