Mission Statement

Inspired by the Gospel we aim to promote peace, justice and the integrity of creation.  We will do this by identifying local and global issues of injustice and its root causes and working with others where appropriate to educate and empower the community to take action.

Objectives

As a group we will seek to educate ourselves and better understand local, national and global issues of justice and peace.

We will use our skills and knowledge to educate people within the Diocese on issues of justice, peace and the integrity of creation with a view to them taking action.

We will provide opportunities for the faith community to engage with justice issues in a variety of ways.

We will contribute regularly to newsletters and the diocesan website on issues of injustice.

We will engage with school pupils through school projects and competitions.

We will provide support to parishes wishing to establish a Justice and Peace group.

We will value the experience of agencies working for Justice and Peace and willingly work with others (including local agencies, parish groups, interfaith groups, schools, minorities and NGOS) to promote common objectives, interests and values.

We will endeavour to compliment the efforts of others working for a better world by seeking opportunities to collaborate on joint projects.
