We are engaged in social action because Jesus tells us that to be a Christian is to love your neighbour. He says explicitly, "For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me." (Matthew 25)

Season of Creation is when the Christian family unites for a worldwide celebration of prayer and action to protect our common home. Why not include Season of Creation issues in bidding prayers, have a harvest meal, or take a walk in a local park to appreciate nature.
Working with the Diocese of Brentwood, the Archdiocese of Liverpool has prepared a resource with prayers and activities for each day of this season. These can be used in your parish, school, or organisation. Click here for Seasons of Creation resources.
There are a number of charities and organisations you can get involved with in the archdiocese. These include Nugent, Caritas, Pax Christi, CAFOD, Missio, and Feeding Liverpool.
You can also get in touch with our Catholic social action coordinator who can advise you or try to help you to find the best fit. Alternatively, you may wish to speak to your parish priest and like-minded parishioners.
