Justice and Peace Day: Mission Beyond the Year of Faith

Our volunteer, Sheila Faucher, represented CAFOD Southwark at the Justice and Peace Day held at Regent Hall in London, on Saturday. The day’s events included:

  • A talk on ‘Faith, Justice, Peace and Mission’ by Bishop Pat Lynch (pictured below with Sheila)
  • A moving speech by Bishop Kevin Dowling about working with people living with HIV and AIDS in South Africa
  • A look at scripture, and a discussion on how it is central for renewing the heart when striving for and caring for those most in need, lead by Sisters from the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary
  • A talk from Bruce Kent, Vice President of CND, about what we as a church can do to highlight the justice work of the church, both locally and globally
