Welcome

Rooted in God’s life and love, we, the Faith and Justice Commission, come together to...

...be active in promoting JUSTICE, LOVE AND PEACE.
...identify the tensions experienced by people as they live their faith.
...support, nurture and celebrate each other.

In all our work, we attempt to use the methodology of the 'pastoral cycle', a prophetic, Christian way of examining the world and acting to change it.

This is what Yahweh asks of you: to act justly, love tenderly & walk humbly with your God” Micah 6:8

To download the F&J July 2018 e-bulletin, the brochure for the Parallel Events at the Congress in Liverpool on the 7-9th September and the plan of the events on the 8th September at St Philip Neri Church hosted by the National Justice and Peace Network and resources for Share the Journey .

Following the example of the Orthodox Church, in 2015 Pope Francis declared September 1 as the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation. According to Pope Francis, “This offers to individual believers and to the community a precious opportunity to renew our personal participation in this vocation as custodians of creation, raising to God our thanks for the marvellous works that He has entrusted to our care, invoking his help for the protection of creation and his mercy for the sins committed against the world in which we live.

The Bishops of England and Wales will be launching the film and course “Global Healing” (now available at www.ourcommonhome.co.uk ) to help individuals, families, parishes and diocese make a practical response to our care of creation.  The new course to explore ways we can help protect our planet, Global Healing is a response to Laudato Si ‘ and is also drawn from the work of CAFOD and its experience and understanding of Climate Change in the Global South where the damage is greatest among the poorest people of our planet who have done least to cause it.

Other resources to celebrate Creation Day and Creation Time (1st September -4th October feast of St Francis) can be found at : https://catholicclimatemovement.global/world-day-of-prayer . The Liverpool Archdiocese J&P Commission together with CAFOD Liverpool has prepared Creation Time resources for 2016 and 2017 containing  praying with the gospels, stories from our time and Laudato Si’ .   The 2018 resource will be ready in the late Summer. This will then provide a complete course for the three years of the Church’s liturgical cycle.  Download at https://jp.liverpoolcatholic.org.uk/resources/creation/
