Environment and ecological conversion


For further information...

In common with many other dioceses in England and Wales, Nottingham has appointed a designated 'environmental lead': Paul Bodenham, Programme Leader for Social Action.

Paul would be happy to hear from you with any queries relating to the environment and the implementation of Laudato Si in parishes in Nottingham Diocese.

Caritas Diocese of Nottingham holds regular workshops to explore the implications of Pope Francis' encyclical Laudato Si' and practical action we can take, as individuals, in our parishes, and across the diocese as a whole.

We are in the process of developing a diocesan environmental strategy which will be launched at a major conference on Saturday 20 November 2021. Watch this stapce for details, but make a note in your diary now.
