Justice and Peace
The National Commission for Justice and Peace advises the Scottish Bishops' Conference of the Catholic Church in matters relating to social justice, international peace and human rights, and promotes action in these areas. Marian Pallister was appointed in 2011 by Bishop Joseph Toal to represent the diocese.
Homelessness in Scotland, the rights of refugees and asylum seekers, the effects of climate chaos on communities around the world, the plight of prisoners in Guantanamo Bay – just a few of the issues that Justice & Peace Scotland encourages Catholics to concern themselves with. http://www.justiceandpeacescotland.org.uk/
SCIAF is the official aid and international development charity of the Catholic Church in Scotland, working in over 20 countries across Asia, Africa and Latin America, to help some of the poorest people in the world, regardless of religion, to work their way out of poverty.
On these pages you will find information about Justice & Peace Scotland and SCIAF together with news from our J & P commissioner and SCIAF ambassador, Marian Pallister.
The IF campaign (supported by SCIAF and Justice and Peace Scotland) is not just talking about hunger in Asia and Africa, but in our own country. The latest figures show that nearly one sixth of children in Argyll and Bute are living in poverty. Marian Pallister encourages us to do something about child poverty in our own diocese.
