Welcome to St John Fisher & St Thomas More Roman Catholic Church

This year CAFOD has celebrated seven campaign successes.  These include defending UK overseas aid that saves lives, asking the World Bank & UK government to invest in renewable energy spending to benefit the world’s poorest people, and calling on governments to respond to the climate challenge in a way that reflects the spirit of Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si’  More information on how we can support these initiatives can be found on CAFOD’s webpage.

Pope Francis calls on fossil fuel bosses to switch to renewable energy
Pope Francis has directly appealed to oil and gas companies to move from fossil fuels to renewable energy in order to prevent climate change pushing the world’s poorest people deeper into poverty. The Pope issued the call at a meeting held in the Vatican on Saturday 9 June attended by executives from many of the largest global energy companies, see our CAFOD webpage for more details.
