The Office of the Damongo Diocesan Justice and Peace Commission (JPC) in collaboration with the Centre for Conflict Transformation and Peace Studies (CECOTAPS), with support from the Catholic Relief Services(CRS), under the Sahel Peace Initiative (SPI 2.0) is organizing formation and training programs for the Justice and Peace Commission (JPC) members in the thirteen (13) parishes/rectorates across the Damongo diocese.
The purpose of the training is to revamp the Justice and Peace Commission(JPC) in the Damogo diocese, through the parishes, since the Justice and Peace Commission is an action wing of evangelization of the church especially at the parish level.
The program is also aimed at empowering members at the parish levels with the requisite knowledge on the concept of Justice and Peace and their roles as JPC members.
The Justice and Peace Commission (JPC) is a Catholic based organization that provides proactive responses to conflict and injustice through community/parish base peace building activities.
The Justice and Peace Commission also promotes love and speaks on issues in relation to social,
economic, political and religious justice as well as respect for human rights and dignity.
As it stands, JPCs at the St. Peter’s parish at Lingbinsi and the Martyrs of Uganda Parish at Bole have been inaugurated after successfully undergoing formation and training workshops.
