Development & Peace Fall Campaign

Development & Peace is launching its Fall Campaign with the theme Together We Hold the Future In Our Hands. The objective of this campaign is to focus on the issue of Ecological Justice

This year’s theme of Ecological Justice will allow us to make the connection between ecological issues, agriculture production and the exploitation of natural resources. The countries most affected by ecological injustice are the least responsible for the destruction of the environment. The western way of life must become more ecologically sustainable. We are called to be in solidarity with the Global South who want to improve their standard of living by sharing their knowledge and technical resources which is not based on consumption and economic growth no matter the cost.

“In solidarity with Development & Peace and the people of the global south we acknowledge the sacredness of the earth and our responsibility to protect and cherish the earth’s ecological diversity. We pray to the Lord”

Book Club
We have chosen a book! “Holy Women” by Pope Benedict XVI; We have ordered extra copies in case you still want to join in. Good food, good reading and good conversation awaits you.

We would like to thank Fr. Victor, Fr. Muthu and Fr. Gregory for filling in while Fr. Stephen is away. It was nice to share the Eucharist with you.
