Scope: The term justice and peace covers a very wide field. The St Alban’s Justice and Peace group have a number of focus areas: poverty, development and peace and more recently, after a study of Laudato Si’, we have worked on issues of the environment, including climate change. We seek to support the work of various agencies where possible ensuring that their message is heard and acted upon – in the St Alban’s parish and outside. These include:

CAFODCAFOD works with partners across the world, wherever the need is greatest, to bring hope, compassion and solidarity to poor communities to end poverty and injustice. CAFOD works with people of all faiths and none.
CAAT (the Campaign against the Arms Trade)The Campaign Against Arms Trade (CAAT) in the UK works to end the international arms trade.
Fairtrade Foundation
