Season of Creation:   Is from 1st September-4th October.  The theme this year is ‘Restoring our common home’.  The U.N. climate change conference in Glasgow (COP 26) in November will be one of the most decisive gathering in modern history.  One hundred and ninety world leaders will gather.  Is there still hope of protecting the worst extremes of climate change such as floods, fire and famine?  The answer is that there is still time, but what is needed to be done will be difficult and expensive.  Two recent reports have established that climate change is the result of human behaviour, behaviour that needs to change.  In preparation for U.N. COP 26 meeting there will be a petition known as the Healthy Planet, Healthy People petition available at http://healthyplanetandpeople.org/ for dioceses, parishes and individuals to sign.  It is envisaged that this petition with signatures will be presented by Pope Francis to the Presidents of these upcoming U.N. Conferences.

Covid-19 Support line for Older People:  Alone manage a national support line and additional supports for older people who have concerns or are facing difficulties relating to COVID-19.  Professional staff are available to answer queries and give advice and reassurance where necessary.  The support line is open seven days a week, 8am-8pm by calling 0818 222 024.

Thought for the Week:  Yesterday is gone, Tomorrow has not yet come.  We have only to-day.  Let us begin.

Positions Available – Community Employment Programme 

Three positions are available in Borrisoleigh under the Community Employment (CE) programme. The CE programme is designed to help people who are long-term unemployed (or otherwise disadvantaged) to get back to work by offering part-time and temporary placements in jobs based within local communities. Participants can take up other part-time work during their placement. After the placement, participants are encouraged to look for permanent jobs elsewhere, based on the experience and new skills they have gained while on a Community Employment scheme.

The Community Employment programme is administered by the Department of Social Protection (DSP). The DSP gives financial support in the form of allowances and funding to assist with the Community Employment programme, for example participant wages, supervisor grants, materials grants and specific skills training grants. Community Employment sponsors are the voluntary organisations or public bodies that manage CE schemes at a local level.
