Justice and Peace

We are now a Fair Trade parish and we operate a Fair Trade stall in the parish hall on the first Sunday of each month after the morning Mass, alongside the refreshments.  In the past we have used various parish activities to raise money for overseas development, often through SCIAF.  More recently we have been concerned to work in partnership with the Justice and Peace group in our twin parish, St Peter’s Mbare, in Zimbabwe.  At present this means setting up communications and introducing ourselves to one another.  We had a Mass said for their intentions on their feast day, and later we hope to contribute to their work of empowering their community to cope in the daily chaos and poverty which surrounds them.
At home we have an on-going concern with homelessness, and we organize parish collections for the charity Fresh Start.  During this recession we have begun to work with our Church of Scotland neighbour, Mayfield Salisbury, to learn more about the effect which poverty has in our local community, and we plan to develop this further.
We urgently need new members to help in our various undertakings.
