Fáilte!

Justice and Peace Ireland offers information about the Catholic Church’s teaching on political, socio-economic and environmental issues.

It’s also a hub for Justice and Peace Groups across Ireland to exchange news, information and advice on how best to ‘strengthen the conviction that we are one single human family’ (LS 52).

Inspired by the Gospel, it is hoped that this hub will develop our sense of solidarity with one another and with all of creation.

We hope Justice and Peace Ireland supports you to build a better Ireland and a better World!

An authentic faith – which is never comfortable or completely personal – always involves a deep desire to change the world, to transmit values, to leave the Earth somehow better than we found it.

Pope Francis
