On the last day of October COP26 begins: “If things continue as they are, in fifty years’ time my baby granddaughter will have to live in an unliveable world”, said one of the world leaders who gathered with Pope Francis on October 4th.
However, this is supposed to be about November, so here at Mildmay Chaplaincy we start with the great Feast of All Saints then the following day we remember, according to a Christian tradition, those who have gone before us.
We usually hold a Memorial Service to pray for and think about those we have cared for hereat Mildmay. Of course, we continue to pray for the Climate Gathering in Glasgow, that the world leaders will be receptive and listen to those of us at grassroots level who are clamouring for justice for the people from countries who suffer the most deprivation. We are also on the countdown to World Aids Day but more of this in our next chaplaincy news.
One of our volunteer chaplains, Revd. Jide Macauley has kept us informed about a 3-Day training session by INERELA+ Europe, which will take place here at Mildmay Hospital, 10-12 Nov, 9.30am-4.30pm.
