In 2015 Stowmarket parish, at the suggestion of the CAFOD+ group, took the decision to work towards becoming a Live Simply parish – and duly won the award in September 2016.

On this page you will find more information about the campaign, and you can find much more on the CAFOD website.

You will also find information about our study sessions on Pope Francis’s encyclical Laudato Si’ – probably one of the most genuinely readable documents to come out of the Vatican in years! – and support material for the individual sessions (see below).
