At Caritas Social Action Network, we’ve just launched our Do Justice campaign. You can find out more at:

The aim of the campaign is to encourage Catholic parishes and schools to discern the needs of their local communities in the light of the Gospel and to act with the skills and resources they have at their disposal to bring about a more just society.

We’ve produced a three-session resource for parishes as a guide to this process, which you’ll find attached. The sessions use the Conversations in the Spirit method of the synodal process, to make sure that everyone is heard, and the best ways forward can be discerned.

We would love to have a quick call with you or a member of your parish about how you could set up a Do Justice group in your parish to discern and act on the needs of your community.

Book a call with our team here

You’ll also find attached a poster for display in the parish. On the Do Justice website, you’ll be able to download a copy of the ‘core text’ of the campaign,Do Justice: A Vision for Spiritual and Civic Renewal in England and Wales.

This document might be a helpful introduction for parishes who want to engage with Do Justice. It’s a reminder of the scriptural roots of justice and the main principles of Catholic Social Teaching which guide our work for a better world.

If your parish is interested in engaging with Do Justice, we’d love to hear from you. We’re beginning to convenea number ofparish groups who are working on this so that we can offer support and learn from each other.

With our prayers and best wishes,
