1st November, 2021:
Dear Chaplains/RE Teachers,
This week, the UK will host the 26th UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow. Christian Art, hosted by Patrick van der Vorst, would like to share a video set to the music of John Denver's 'Windsong'. Through paintings by Van Gogh, Michelangelo and other artists, they look at the beauty of our world... a world that has been entrusted into our care. We ask that we may all grow deeper in our respect for God's Creation and take better care of it. The website is free and available at Christian Art firstname.lastname@example.org
There is quite an amount of material available but, rather than send out so much to everyone, please let me know if you would like the information.

Begin again to the summoning birds
‘Looking to the future of Catholic education, let us do so with hope, confidence and enthusiasm knowing that – in the life of faith and discipleship we have been given something to bring to those we teach that offers something new, something different – a further and wider horizon: the vision that God has for all his creatures. It is nothing short of the fullness of life.’ (Archbishop Dermot Farrell)Read more
‘The hope of Advent and the joy of Christmas inspire us to reach out to those in greatest need at this time. Keep Christ at the centre this Christmas by bringing the hope and joy of his birth to people who are sick, isolated, lonely or poor. A simple act of kindness can make such a difference.’ (Irish Bishops)Read more
