21-socjustThis group meets monthly and the meetings, which are advertised in the parish Bulletin, are open to all. The group works to promote the words of the Hebrew Scripture,

"this is what Yahweh asks of you; only this,
to act justly,
to love tenderly
and to walk humbly with your God."

Micah 6:8

At the beginning of a year group members decide on one major issue which they will:

  • become informed about
  • disseminate information about
  • promote some action in response to the above

Here are some LINKS which assist in approaching social justice issues:

"The joys and hopes, the sorrows and anxieties of the women and men of this age, especially those who are poor or in any way oppressed, these are the joys and hopes, the sorrows and anxieties of the followers of Christ."

Vatican Council II

"Action on behalf of justice and participation in the transformation of the world fully appear to us as a constitutive dimension of the preaching of the Gospel or, in other words, of the Church’s mission for the redemption of the human race and its liberation from every oppressive situation."

Synod of Bishops, Rome, 1972.
