NW NJPN eBulletin March 2022

The NW NJPN E Bulletin for March 2022 leads with current reports about the Russian attacks on Ukraine. As we know, the situation is constantly changing with new onslaughts daily. The Archbishop of Liverpool has launched a major appeal offering practical support for the Ukrainian people with collection points in churches across the diocese plus ways to contribute financially – look out for similar humanitarian responses in your local area. Bruce Kent has made a stirring speech calling for an end to nuclear weapons, redoubling our efforts to build peaceful ways to resolve conflicts, supporting those who don’t want to fight and offering a safe haven for refugees. There are links to the winning entries (print and image) in this year’s schools competition organised by the Columbans on the theme ‘21st Century Changemakers’. Brazilian Bishops are protesting government plans to take over more indigenous land and the denuding of the Amazon rainforest. Also included in this issue are Lent resources and an Easter story plus diary dates for the forthcoming months.NW NJPN Justice and Peace E Bulletin March 2022 [1]
