“The Peace and Social Justice Committee of the Roman Catholic Church of Bermuda is interested to raise awareness on all matters of Justice and Peacekeeping in accordance with the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church worldwide. In June 2015 Pope Francis published his second encyclical “Lautado Si” in which he reminded the church of the social justice imperative to care for God’s creation.

“The Peace and Social Justice Committee is a grassroots committee. Its intention is to stir the hearts and minds of all by raising awareness of matters of social justices in our world today to which we might not otherwise pay attention.

“All are welcome. Refreshments will be served.”
