St Peter and St Elizabeth’s Retreat Day Wythenshawe June 17th 2011

Orienteering finding out about Climate Justice

Playing the Climate Change Game

Climate Justice was the focus for a Retreat Day at Sacred Heart and St Peter’s Church in Wythenshawe. Fr Paul Standish kindly gave us use of the Church, Guild Room , garden and presbytery for the day.
Sixty Yr 6 pupils and staff took part in activities which included , the climate Change Game, Climate Change Orienteering, Unfair Games, a weave of the groups earth ,fire water sun and moon as well as a reflective session about St Francis and the pupils own responses to climate justice.

The day opened and closed with liturgy and Father, with the help of his parishioners, provided a wonderful cooked lunch.

Without the help of Fr Paul and his parishioners, our school volunteers Eileen, Vin and Rosaleen, the school staff and Joseph a student from the Parish the day would not have been possible. Many thanks, it was a real team effort.
Back at the office two of our volunteers Charlotte and Gemma have been busy putting the weaves together. They will form a hanging for each school which will be displayed in their school as a reminder of thier work for Climate Justice, their work with CAFOD and their creativity.
We are holding two more days in Wythenshawe and one in Chester in the near future.
We’re just praying for sunshine!!!
