IDEAS FOR CHRISTMAS
CAFOD have their usual array of World Gifts. As well as the certificate type gifts – like buying a goat or some chickens – there are also some lovely artisan gifts available. It is a good range and well worth taking a look.
PAX CHRISTI have introduced an online shop in the last 12 months. Now it’s even easier to buy your favourite Christmas cards and Bethlehem olive wood goods. However, they also have a whole range of other things to buy including childrens’ books and some decorations.

The Movement for the Abolition of War MAW has published a new booklet, “From War to Peace – Thoughts on the end of Warfare”, a collection of quotations and illustrations which updates and builds on an earlier publication.
