A diocese is: The collection of people and their parishes, in a particular geographic area under care and direction of a particular Bishop.It is a bit like a county.
These diocese are collected together under a Bishops’ conference. In the UK there are three Bishops Conferences.These are a bit like countries.
In England and Wales some dioceses are part of the Caritas social action network. This aims to ensure families and communities, live with peace and human dignity in England and Wales.
This network helps coordinate community and specialist support for families and children, the elderly, people who are homeless, refugees, the disabled, and prisoners.
CAFOD is the international development charity and the official aid agency of the Catholic Church in England and Wales.
They work in Humanitarian aid, disasters relief, and reaching out to those in poverty overseas and campaigning for global justice. Sustainable development and protection of creation is a key part of their work.
Justice and Peace groups are found in most diocese and many parishes. They form an organising group to raise awareness of injustices, global and national. Covering a huge amount of topics such as the arms trade, Life issues, animal cruelty, human trafficking.
Green Christian are a community of ordinary Christians from all backgrounds and traditions.
Green Christian Local Groups are groups of ordinary people supporting one another in their ecological discipleship and, in so doing, being vital signs of the kingdom for our times.
The Laudato Si’ Movement trains Laudato Si’ Animators worldwide. Laudato Si’ Animators lead their community in prayer and action for our common home.
