Jesuit Missions launches resources portal in the build-up to the UK General Election

June 10, 2024

The UK is set to head to the polls on Thursday 4th July, with candidates and campaigners ramping up their efforts to secure all-important votes.

Jesuit Missions (JM), the international mission and development organisation of the Jesuits in Britain, has launched a dedicated resources page to help people engage in the process in the run-up to polling day.

Materials include JM’s requests for the new government, a youth guide to the election, what Catholic Social Teaching says on elections and tailored prayer resources.

There are also reflections from specialists in areas affected by conflict, such as Myanmar and Palestine, with a limited podcast series on key international issues such as refugees and migration set to be released over the coming weeks.

While national issues are always likely to play a leading role in a General Election, it is important to remember we are part of a global society.

As an international development organisation, JM works with vulnerable communities across the world and sees the impact decisions made here in the UK can have on them.

Visit jesuitmissions.org.uk/general-election-2024-resources for a full list of materials, and search ‘Jesuit Missions’ on social media for regular updates.
