Our friends at Caritas Aotearoa New Zealand, the Catholic agency for peace, justice and development; have announced the latest series of workshops for this year’s Social Justice Week; and they’ve invited Anglicans to join in.
The theme of Social Justice Week this year is Enabling Communities: everyone has a part to play, and focuses on disability and participation. It’s all about ensuring that in our churches and communities, everyone is able to participate and belong, offering their God-given gifts for the good of the Body of Christ.
The workshops delve into the lived experience of disability, allow time and space to interpret the topic through the Scriptures, and then work together on possible actions that will enable more people to play their part in church and in society.
Of all the workshops, one is being hosted in Tawa, Wellington on Saturday the 18th of August; and another is being hosted in Palmerston North on Saturday the 25th of August, allowing a couple of opportunities for people in our diocese to take part.
