The Faith in Action Group aims to live out our Christian calling for love and concern for our neighbour by taking action both locally and internationally.
Our main focus is on:
- Promoting Social Justice through prayer, raising awareness and encouraging action
- Protecting God’s creation and mankind’s future by supporting the climate and environment initiatives in the parish
- Encouraging charitable giving, primarily through the Parish Project
This year’s Parish Project aims are raising awareness and fundraising on
- Local homelessness and deprivation
- Refugees/ Migrants in Reading
- Laudato Si
Additionally, we have a “rapid response” capability to enable uncommitted funds to be donated to other good causes which arise from time to time.
Get involved! If you would like to share:
- your thoughts
- your ideas
- your energy
- your love to your neighbour and our planet
Please do get in touch with the Parish FAITH IN ACTION group. We meet in the presbytery for a couple of hours roughly every two months or so at 7.30 pm Look out for announcements in the newsletter, on Facebook or contact:

“Our love should not be just words and talk. It must be true love, which shows itself in action”
