Council for Justice and Peace of the Irish Catholic Bishops’ Conference
This Council comes under the Episcopal Commission for Social Issues and International Affairs
To promote the social dimension of the Gospel with a view to building the civilisation of love.
The role of the Council for Justice and Peace is to support the Irish Catholic Bishops’ Conference in promoting the social teaching of the Church and to advise on issues of social concern, both nationally and internationally.
Established in 2005 by the Irish Bishops’ Conference, the newly formed ICJSA, as the Council was formerly known, combined the Bishops’ Council for Social Welfare and the Irish Commission for Justice and Peace.
NICCOSA is a northern sub-committee of the Irish Council for Justice and Peace, made up largely of lay people with relevant expertise and experience who provide advice on social, political and legislative matters to the Catholic Bishops of Northern Ireland.
