Caritas, Justice & Peace Mass
Join us for the annual Caritas, Justice and Peace Mass for the Archdiocese of St Andrews & Edinburgh.
This year we welcome Fr Ian Stevenson, Principal RC Chaplain (Army) & Deputy Assistant Chaplain General. He will preach on the theme: 'Peace in a Military Context'. Principal Celebrant will be Canon Brian Gowans (St Marie's, Kirkcaldy) who leads the Archdiocesan Caritas, Justice & Peace Commission.
After Mass there will be a delicious hot and cold food buffet and a chance to meet people from across the diocese. This includes members of our Caritas, Justice & Peace Commission who will be pleased to chat and tell you about their work in the diocese.
It takes place at St Columba's Church in 9 Upper Gray Street, Edinburgh, on Monday 4 September at 6:30pm. We look forward to welcoming you.
Please register here so we can estimate numbers for catering. Thanks!
Caritas, Justice & Peace: A Synodal Way Forward
Register for this event here.
Do you see Caritas, Justice & Peace as integral to your Catholic faith?
We want you to help shape the future work of the Caritas, Justice & Peace Commission of the Archdiocese of St Andrews & Edinburgh.
Our aim is to re-imagine how we promote our work, doing so in the light of the ongoing Synod, where Communion, Participation and Mission are key elements.
There will be brief presentations from our four working groups which currently focus on:
- Food, Poverty and Inequality
- Laudato Si
- Refugees and Migrants.
At this event we will be joined by others involved in this part of the Church’s mission and will hear from our friends in groups such as Justice and Peace Scotland, Pax Christi Scotland, and the Society of St Vincent de Paul.
The final session of the afternoon will focus on the future: how does our work go forward in the Archdiocese? By doing so we we can listen and collaborate to help those in need in our Archdiocese and further afield.
We look forward to welcoming you!
