PPC Priority Group 2
Justice & Peace & The Integrity of Creation Group ("JPIC")

This is the home page for the Justice & Peace & The Integrity of Creation Group,
one of the current five Priority Groups within our PPC (Parish Pastoral Council).

What we are   JPIC, formerly known as the Justice & Peace Group, is concerned for the world around us, and, inspired by the teachings of Jesus, the Gospels and by the social teaching of the Church, our role is to decide collectively on initiatives and actions

Affliliations We are a part of the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart ("MSC") JPIC, we are linked to the National Justice & Peace Network and we have very strong links with the Justice & Peace group in Tamworth.

Who we are  
JPIC currently consists of ten people who meet monthly to discuss our concerns for the world. Our chair is currently Anne Romain, and we welcome new members

Where and When do we meet   The JPIC
meets in the Parish Centre at 8pm on the third Thursday of every month and everyone is always welcome.

Accountability Like all PPC Priority Groups, the JPIC is accountable to the PPC, and one of the JPIC members will attend, and report to PPC meetings on a monthly basis.

Some upcoming events

We are organizing a collection for the weekend of 19th/20th August for the small Catholic Worker House in Calais looking after young refugees.

Each year we contribute to the Parish Lenten Stations of the Cross by producing the material for one of the Saturday mornings.  Following contact with Fr Johnny of Nablus in Palestine, we have created and shared our stations of the cross with the women of Nablus.

We contribute to Cafod campaigns. Recently we held a Rich Man Poor Man supper, a Bread & Soup supper with the showing of the film “I, Daniel Blake”. Our next Soup & Film supper in support of CAFOD will be on Saturday 7th October.

Each year in November we hold a study day on a topical issue, such as a Papal encyclical, for example the extraordinary ‘Laudato Si’. For this year’s study day on Saturday 11th November we are planning to look at aspects of non-violent communication.

We participate in many activities to try and build community, such as with Open Door and Centre 33, St Albans Sustainability Week, St Albans food banks, Fairtrade, Bakhita and Tiplyang.
