JUSTICE AND PEACE GROUP
  We try to address the meaning of justice in the light of the Gospel and Catholic Social Teaching. We try to raise awareness our own and others’, of the instances of injustice and need and to discover ways in which everyone can respond in the hope of building a better world. Everyone is welcome to any of the monthly evening meetings, which take place in the Parish Centre on the third Wednesday except in August and December.

For further information, please see the Justice and Peace Group page.
