Would you like support and encouragement with justice and peace issues? Working as a Group is an effective way to make progress. While action for Justice, Peace and the Integrity of Creation is strongly rooted in Catholic Social Teaching, many Justice and Peace groups work ecumenically and sometimes with partners from other faiths. From the Scriptures and the example of Christ's life and teaching, from the Church’s Social Action and Teaching and from our own faith experience, we are inspired by, and wonder at God’s Spirit acting throughout creation and in every human being
