St. Aidan’s Justice and Peace group exists to support the whole parish to
act justly, live simply, and walk humbly with our God in practical ways such as
· Supporting CAFOD e.g. by raising money, signing petitions and contacting MPs.
· Supporting the MANNA CENTRE for the homeless, with money, clothes and food.
· Supporting PAX CHRISTI – a Catholic peace organisation
· Supporting the PURLEY FOOD HUB with regular donations of food.
· Supporting Refugee mothers and new babies at WEST CROYDON REFUGEE CENTRE with donations of baby clothes etc.
· Promoting TRAIDCRAFT and FAIRTRADE.
· Occasionally supporting the work of SAFE PASSAGE and SEEKING SANCTUARY.
· We aim to increase opportunities for coordination with other J and P groups in the Croydon Deanery.
· We seek to cooperate ecumenically with local Christian communities.
· We welcome opportunities where we can work with other local faith groups and all people of good will who wish to promote justice, peace and the protection of the environment – our common home.
· We usually meet in the Parish House every 6 weeks or so at 7.45 on Wednesdays.
New members VERY welcome.
