There are many campaigns and activities that Parishes around the Diocese promote and support. These include:
Peace Sunday is in January each year and focuses on the Pope’s annual Peace message. Parishes have used resources provided by Pax Christi to promote and highlight Peace Sunday raising awareness of the need for peace worldwide. It is also a good opportunity to raise funds for Pax Christi to support the wonderful work they do.
Some Parishes have been looking at and campaigning on environmental issues, highlighting how we as Catholics should be involved. This has taken the form of a variety of activities from raising awareness of environmental issues, and promoting them through liturgy to practical action such as carrying out an environmental audit of the Parish. The Christian Ecology Link and Eco-Congregation websites have a range of ideas that Parishes can take on board.
