Our mission is to energise the work of Justice and Peace in our diocese.


Diocesan Prayer for Justice & Peace


“We are called to preach this mission of the Gospel, this Good News of the mission of Christ to liberate humankind. Right at the heart of this preaching lies the work we must do for justice.”

Justice in the World. World Synod of Bishops, 1971

“Working for peace and justice is central to the mission of the Church”
Cardinal Basil Hume

A concern for, and being active in, justice and peace is an essential part of the Christian life. It is living the Gospel. From the Bible to today’s Church teachings we are encouraged to do whatever possible for justice by: 

  • ·  being aware of the reality of injustice, suffering and violence in our world

  • ·  exploring the causes of injustice

  • ·  increasing awareness among others about these issues

  • ·  considering this in the light of our faith

  • ·  working for justice on our doorsteps and overseas

  • ·  living out our faith and promoting action for justice and peace

  •   how we live - personal witness

  •    praying for the situations of injustice that they may be changed

  •    raising money to help those working to change unjust structures
