Committee for Social Justice

 

The mission of the Committee for Social Justice is to educate and empower people in principles and practices derived from biblical injunctions to live justly and peaceably as these are embodied in Catholic Social Teaching, to encourage people to become actively involved with those in need, and to participate in programs that work for a more just and peaceful world. Committee members educate each other about Catholic Social Teaching, assist the pastoral staff in raising social awareness and concerns, and collaborate with other ministries and community partners in activities such as the Walk Against Hunger and the Local Giving Tree.
