After the success of the first Social Justice and Peace Forum on Energising Young People in Social Justice and Peace, we are pleased to announce that the next one will take place on Saturday 6th July, titled ‘Our Place: How do we achieve the global UN Sustainable Development Goals?’.
This forum is one of the ways that we are trying to bring the practical expression of Justice and Peace to all activity in the diocese. It is hoped that through listening to accomplished speakers and sharing experiences we will all become more confident in the values of justice and peace that underpin our work, and be able to find solutions together.
To inform and drive this, each forum has a particular theme. We have invited Christine Allen, Director of CAFOD, James Buchanan from Operation Noah and Edward De Quay from the Bishops Conference of England and Wales to talk about the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Their talks will be followed by discussion in small groups and then a shared lunch.
The Social Justice and Peace Forum is open to all but we would especially welcome your attendance and contribution to the discussion.
It will be held at St Aloysius Church Hall on Saturday 6th July from 10:30am to 1:30pm. The discussion an any outcomes of the forum will be shared with the Archbishop’s Council. This is an excellent opportunity not only to discuss the practicalities of bringing the values of justice and peace to the forefront, but to support the work of the Diocese of Westminster’s Justice and Peace Commission.
