Prayer intention for January: We pray for a rapid end to the pandemic throughout the world, but that the solidarity, compassion and care for others recognized in 2020 may continue and grow in 2021.
'If only this may prove not to be just another tragedy of history from which we learned nothing. ... If only this immense sorrow may not prove useless, but enable us to take a step forward towards a new style of life. If only we might discover once for all that we need one another, and in this way our human family can experience a rebirth, with all its faces, all its hands and all its voices, beyond the walls that we have erected.' (Pope Francis, Fratelli tutti 35)
‘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.
