The Peace and Justice Ministry responds to the Gospel’s call of peace and justice in our world. We are a small group who meet periodically to share our knowledge of local, national and international issues that are in need of prayer, advocacy, and funding.
Members of our group share in preparing bulletin inserts and bulletin board displays about the monthly outreach focus including the work of the Canadian Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF). Members write articles for “The Circular”, our parish newsletter, to keep parishioners informed and engaged in prayer and action.
We inform the parish of seasonal meditation resources. We provide opportunities for our whole parish to celebrate and pray for needs of Peace and Justice known to us and invite donations to meet the needs of those less fortunate than ourselves. We encourage participation in ecumenical and community events like the Annual World Day of prayer service, the Kamloops Peace Walk and the Pride parade.
Over the years we have collected many resources and DVDs that are available for loan to youth or adults by contacting the Territory Resource Centre.
Everyone is welcome to our meetings as announced in the bulletin three to four times a year.
Questions and concerns may be brought to the cathedral office and messages will be forwarded to the appropriate person in this group. If you are interested in joining us, contact the office for further information at 250-372-3912.
