Climate Charter to be launched in Diocese of Tuam, Killala and Achonry
Bishop Patrick Rooke spoke passionately about his concerns over climate change at the Tuam, Killala and Achonry Diocesan synod on 25 September 2015. Bishop Patrick said,
During the [Church of England] debate at the July Synod in York, climate change was described as ‘the big issue’, and as a spiritual problem to which there is a moral imperative to act. ‘Synod was told; ‘there is no Planet B’. I intend therefore to set up a group to look at this whole area and to present us with a Diocesan Charter for honouring creation."It is good to see a Church of Ireland Bishop speak out and take action about one of the most important issue of our day.
