RACIAL JUSTICE – next weekend 9th September, second collection at all Masses. Racial Justice Sunday has been marked by our different church traditions for some years now. Racial Justice day was initiated because it was believed that churches needed support to help their members develop the confidence to get to grips with prejudice and racism in themselves, in the church and in wider society. It was hoped that individuals might respect and honour those different from themselves, that the Church might become inclusive in the way that we believe God wants it to be and society transformed.
