The Justice & Peace Group was founded in the Millennium Year. Our mission statement says that our concern is to raise awareness of injustice and oppression, experienced by people at home and abroad, particularly in the Third World.
In accordance with Gospel Reading, we aim to take practical measures to alleviate their suffering, so that all may grow in the spirit of Jesus Christ. Our current practical measure is a fundraising drive to support an organization, which airlifts livestock to help African farm families. We are involved in the work being done by agencies such as the Debt & Development Coalition, and the Fair Trade movement.
We have a small core group of about six people; willing helpers, mostly female in running events, augments this. We plan in the future to look at some issues of social injustice in our own country.
