'Prepare the Future: Taking the Common Good Seriously'

By Peter Heneghan

The Archdiocese of Liverpool Justice and Peace Commission are taking up Pope Francis’ challenge to ‘Prepare the Future’ by holding an online Zoom event on the morning of Saturday 10 October from 10am to 12 noon. ‘Prepare the Future: Taking the Common Good Seriously’ is open to all and follows on from the Annual Assembly which took place over several days in June and July.
 
The focus of the Annual Assembly, held during lockdown, was a response to the Covid-19 pandemic based on Revelation 21:5 – ‘See, I am making all things new’ – and the series of talks and discussions were given by Cardinal Michael Fitzgerald, Father Diarmuid O’Murchu and Christine Allen, director of Cafod. Fr Diarmuid and Christine were also joined by Andy Burnham, mayor of Greater Manchester, for a panel discussion.
 
Christine Allen will again join the discussion, on 10 October, via Zoom for a live presentation on ‘Taking the Common Good Seriously’ where there will be an opportunity for small group discussion leading to local action.
 
To register, visit the Liverpool Archdiocese Justice and Peace website at jp.liverpoolcatholic.org.uk. Numbers are limited so early registration is advised.
 
All the talks and discussions from the assembly, including a highlight clip, are available on the Liverpool Justice and Peace YouTube channel.
