Under the umbrella of Outreach Justice and Peace we work together to promote the social teaching of the church.

Our main areas of activity are: helping the homeless through Fresh Start

  • Supporting the Church’s work in developing counties by supporting SCIAF supporting workers in the developing world
  • Maintaining  our status as a Fairtrade Parish, maintaining our commitment to the environment through our  status as an Eco Congregation.
  • In addition we support the parish Eco Congregation Group and SVDP group and other areas of justice and peace when asked.

Used Stamp Collecting

The Justice & Peace Group at St Columbia’s have asked if St Peter’s parishioners would like to support the Kiltegan Fathers in Stirling by collecting used stamps. This is a very simple way to raise funds. The Outreach Group will leave a box at the back of the church for donations. Please leave ½inch of paper round the stamp. If foreign stamps have a clear/notable franking mark leave intact. Old stamps have excellent value.

Justice and Peace Announcement:

Everything is not good. “God looked at everything he has made, and he found that it very good” (Gen. 1:31). He charged humans with the responsibility to care for what He had made, now the earth “groans in travail” (Rom. 8:22). This Season of Creation let us turn to Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Sì to learn how we can actively live out our responsibility for ‘our common home’
