Shrewsbury ... shall be a name 'as stirring to the heart as the glories we have lost'

Blessed John Henry Newman, 1852

Catholic Associations

Justice and Peace Groups

Many parishes have groups working on Justice and Peace issues. The Diocesan Commission for the Promotion of Justice, Peace and Social Responsibility exists to further and encourage this activity. The vision of the Commission is of ‘A diocese fully engaged with the call of God to be a people of justice and peace’. Its purpose statement is ‘As Christians, we are called to try to live out God’s will. God calls us to act for the common good and the good of all creation. The main task of the members of the Commission is to answer that call personally and to engage the diocese in doing likewise, in the light of scripture and Catholic social teaching.’
