Justice & Peace
Westminster has become an accredited Fairtrade Diocese
The Justice and Peace Group share some good news:
In the February E-Bulletin we shared the good news that Westminster has become an accredited Fairtrade Diocese.
That means over half of our communities are registered as Fairtrade Parishes, along with a number of Catholic Schools in the Diocese. We want to thank everyone who played a part in getting the awards for your Parishes and sustaining a commitment to fair trading for small farmers worldwide over many, many years. Now is the chance to celebrate all that hard work!
We are therefore cordially inviting you to attend an Online Celebration and Social on Friday 5th March 2021, from 11.00-11.45am.
Please join us to hear a message of congratulations from Cardinal Vincent Nichols and to share stories of how the Award was achieved.
We would also like you to bring along your own Fairtrade refreshments – tea, coffee, cake, biscuits, fruit, chocolate – to enjoy during the event and to show in a collective screenshot for publicity (and the archives) afterwards.
