Next Sunday, 17th February, is Racial Justice Sunday. Promoted by the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales, this day is established to recognise the problems faced by people due to racism and ethnic discrimination in the workplace. In a world steeped in violence, conflict and discrimination, the Gospel demands that we acknowledge the dignity of the human person, the necessity of building peace, prosperity and justice for all. We are called to ensure people are not exploited while they work and to open our hearts to those who face this hatred. “As you did this for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did it to me…” Please take one of the special prayer cards that can be found on the table in the narthex. Further information can be found on the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales web site - click here.
There will be a retiring collection after all Masses next Sunday for the Catholic Association of Racial Justice.
