Archbishop Charles J. Scicluna has re-established the Commission for Justice and Peace and has appointed Mr Daniel Darmanin, an architect by profession, as President of the Commission for a three year term.
Mr Darmanin, 33 , graduated from the University of Malta and pursued his studies at the University of Loyola in Chicago, USA, where he read for a Masters degree in Social Justice and Community Development.
The members of the Commission include Mr Walance Buttigieg Scicluna, Dr Katrine Camilleri, Rev. Fr Mark Cachia S.J., Dr John Paul Cauchi, Ms Maria Vella, and Ms Simone Vella Lenicker, architect.
The Justice and Peace Commission intends to work with people of goodwill in favour of a more just society, where everyone's rights are respected and where everyone lives in dignity and peace. The Commission is planning to accomplish this task through reflection and analysis, by advocating for human rights and quality of life, and by creating wider awareness on Catholic Social Teaching.
The Commission will be also assisting the local Church in her contribution towards a more just society that respects the dignity of the human person, while encouraging the People of God to live this solidarity in practical terms.
