St. Columba’s has a very active Justice and Peace Group that meets monthly, directly when possible or virtually.
The group works closely with the SVDP group, and some members also serve on the Archdiocesan Caritas and Justice and Peace Commission.
Here are some of our activities:
- Organise fundraising Events and Coffee Mornings
- Arrange Talks from a variety of speakers -in the hall and by Zoom
- Fundraise mainly through a 100 Club for our affiliate Parish St Peter’s Mbare, in Zimbabwe, funding projects to help the parish and community and meeting regularly on line.
- Support Fresh Start/Mary’s Meals/Food Banks/St Catharine’s Mercy Centre/SCIAF/St Patrick’s Missionary Society
- Refugees-raise awareness and provide help and support
- Annual Justice and Peace Mass
- St Andrew’s Day Ecumenical Prayer Service
- Promote activities supporting us as an Eco-Parish-encouraging Environmentally friendly practice
- Publish Dove Magazine-promoting awareness of J&P issues and Events
