Message from Bishop Philip:
In this Year of Mercy, I encourage you to pray in particular on this day for peace in our troubled world, for the comfort of the afflicted and for the conversion of those who needlessly inflict violence on others. For practical ideas on how to put peace into action, you can visit the Pax Christi UK website www.paxchristi.org.uk
The work of Pax Christi is based on the Gospel and inspired by faith. Our vision is of a world where people can live in peace, without fear of violence in all its forms. Rooted in Catholic Christianity, we work with all who share our values to abolish war and create communities of peace and justice. Envelopes are in the church porches for anyone wishing to donate to the work of Pax Christi.
