Justice & Peace/Green Group

Sacred Heart Justice & Peace and Green Group

The group meet at 6.30pm in Room 2 on the last Tuesday of the month (except July and December). Our aim is to work together and with parishioners to promote the social teaching of the church and stewardship of the earth.

New members are always welcome.

Our main areas of activity are:

Running a Fairtrade Stall before and after each mass on the 2nd weekend

of each month from October through to June.

Holding an event to highlight Fairtrade Fortnight each February/March.

Supporting SCIAF by buying Real Gifts with the 5% commission we make from the stall and promoting their work.

Showing films on the themes of social justice and the environment.

Supporting refugees through events and fundraisers and liaising with E.C.S. – Edinburgh Churches for Sanctuary.

Praying for peace by offering an hour of quiet prayer, meditation and music in Advent.

Marking Holocaust Memorial Day on the 27th of January each year.
