Peace Sunday ‘Overcome indifference and win peace’


Next Sunday, January 17th, the Catholic Church in England and Wales celebrates ‘Peace Sunday’, our annual day of prayer for peace.


Pope Francis’s theme for his Peace Day Message of 2016 is ‘Overcome indifference and win peace’. In this he invites us to reflect on how we can hope for peace without working to challenge the causes of violence and injustice in our world today. There will be a display & stall with a summary of the Pope’s message available, together with information on the Catholic peace movement Pax Christi who are engaged in the day-to-day work of trying to make the Christian vision of peace a reality in our world. There will also be a retiring collection for their work.
