Westminster named first Fairtrade diocese

An online celebration was held last week to mark Westminster becoming the first Livesimply diocese

More than 60 representatives from Westminster parishes watched a video message from Cardinal Vincent Nichols, before hearing from guest speakers who praised all those involved, and encouraged parishes not yet signed up to complete the award.

The meeting was closed in prayer by the Chair of Westminster Justice & Peace, Fr Dominic Robinson SJ, parish priest of Farm Street Jesuit parish. He reflected: “This is a wonderful moment to celebrate and the fruit of so much dedicated work over the years. It was great to see at our online celebration Fairtrade stallholders and supportive parishioners from such a diverse cross section of our parishes. Many thanks are due to them for all their hard work.”
