Prayer intention for October: We pray for the success of the meeting of nations for CUP26 in November and that Governments will accept their responsibilities and there will be real commitment by all to combat climate change .
‘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 parish centre of one of the three Catholic Leamington churches (see the list opposite for the venues of future meetings). 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 wider Catholic Leamington parish to consider issues relating to justice and peace. Therefore, any parishioner is welcome to attend at any time.
It is held to learn about issues of concern and feed information back to the parish, making recommendations or facilitating activities in response to these issues. In this way we hope to raise the level of awareness amongst parishioners.
The meeting does not involve itself directly in fundraising or aid activities but rather areas of concern such as:
We cannot do everything, but rather choose those issues that are of particular interest to those attending the meetings. Unfortunately this may mean that we cannot participate in campaigns or projects that are current at any particular time.
In particular, note is taken of input from:
The COP26 UN Climate Change conference will run from 31 October to 12 November in Glasgow. Saturday 6 November is the COP26 Coalition's Global Day of Action: in Leamington there will be a meeting at 12 noon that day in the Pump Room Gardens to demand that the heads of government deliver climate justice.
