North Wales Justice and Peace come together

On Saturday, I had the pleasure of spending the day in beautiful Pantasaph with lovely people from across North Wales, who all share a passion and commitment to Justice and Peace.  Among attendees were representatives from other charities such as SHARE, Christian Aid and Aid for the Church in Need.

The day was organised by Katja Jewell, Joyce Elcock and Maria Pizzoni who are keen to rebuild the Justice and Peace network across North Wales.

We started the day in glorious sunshine and did the Stations of the Cross, where each of

us told a story that was relevant to our cause and linked in with Jesus’s struggle.  It was a very powerful reflection which made Jesus’s suffering all the more real, connecting us with people’s suffering today.

After a shared lunch, we discussed Justice and Peace in North Wales, and how we can build on this, and work together more in the future.

As part of the Justice and Peace network, we hope to make a difference.  I would like to invite you to be part of this network too.  It would be wonderful to see CAFOD volunteers interlinking their CAFOD role with the Justice and Peace network.  Please contact me to discuss this further.

There will be an overnight retreat in Noddfa on Friday 10th November which you would
