About Us

Welcome to the website of the Middlesbrough Diocese Justice and Peace Commission.

‘This is what Yahweh asks of you –to act justly, love tenderly and walk humbly with your God’ ( Micah 6:8)

As a Diocesan Group we seek to be a visible sign for Justice and Peace in the Diocese and wider community. We seek to raise awareness of peace and justice issues, and provide a forum and service for all individuals and groups working for Justice and Peace.

Vision, Mission and Values

We seek to share a vision of the world in which people can live in peace, respecting the dignity of each and everyone and recognising our duty to care responsibly for God’s creation – our Common Home.

Our Aim

As a Commission we aim to:

  • explore and understand issues of justice and peace
  • share our concerns with others in the diocese
  • undertake practical actions and campaign for change
  • understand the issues in the context of our faith and of Catholic Social Teaching
  • Celebrate all the good things that are already happening in our Diocese, our parishes and in our schools.
