Prayer intention for May: We pray that we may remember and support those who are imprisoned for their beliefs or for speaking out against injustice.
‘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:
News At 6.30 pm 0n Thursday 12th May there will be a mass at St Peter's followed by a party in the Parish Hall to celebrate the last 50 years in the parish of Brian and Janice Austin prior to their departure from the Leamington area. Their contribution to promoting and practising Justice and Peace in that period has been exemplary.
