St Ignatius Peace Through Justice Group

The St Ignatius Peace through Justice Group was founded in 2008 and aims at realising the kingdom of God by promoting peace through working for justice and right relationships. Our efforts are based on the Holy Spirit, the great Catholic social justice tradition, and current readings.

We focus on raising awareness of justice issues (talks / special Sundays, items in the weekly newsletter) and promote eco-justice through gardening/green initiatives, mainly at the Holy Spirit Church grounds (Auchenflower). We support the Foundation of Women in Agricultural Development (FOWIAD) in PNG and at times raises funds for special causes (e.g. water pumps in Myanmar and India through the Jesuit Mission).

Annual regular events are the highlighting of ATSIC, Refugee and Social Justice Sundays and the promotion of fair trade before Christmas.

The group meets every FIRST Monday of the month at 7.30pm in the Horstmann Room (at the Parish Office).

New members are always welcome.

Please refer to the parish newsletter for upcoming meetings / events.
