Using a workshop format, the current reality of modern slavery and how the parish contributes to it is examined. Church teachings and Gospel passages are also discussed in relation to victims of modern slavery. A strategy, the Parish Modern Slavery Project, is offered as a faith response for the parish interested in addressing this social ill.
