‘ Justice and Peace’ activities are seen as an integral part and expression of our love of neighbour and an intrinsic part of our Christian way of life. In other words, to be concerned about the lack of justice and peace is a necessity for us all.
The monthly meeting exists to consider Justice and Peace issues, usually on the 4th Monday of each month (except August and December) in the Flint Room of the Parish Centre Annexe. This is an open meeting for any parishioner to take part.
Our meeting does not see itself as a separate group of the parish, but rather a meeting of the parish to consider issues relating to justice and peace. Therefore, any parishioner is welcome to attend at any time.
