The Justice and Peace Commission

The Commission works towards exploring the causes of injustice, increasing awareness among others of these issues, praying that unjust situations might be changed for the better, working for justice both at home and abroad and providing practical assistance for those in need. The Commission works through parish groups, ecumenical groups, inter-faith groups, through individuals and other contacts. Please contact the Justice and Peace Fieldworker, Paul Bodenham, at

Pope Francis encourages everyone to join in prayer on 1 September, the Day of Prayer for Creation. The day opens the worldwide Season of Creation which closes with the Feast of St Francis on 4 October. Watch this video for his message.

For each Sunday Mass during the season, the Justice and Peace Commission is suggesting a prayer which you can include in the Prayers of the Faithful.
