Peace & Justice
Our Peace & Justice ministry is rooted in Catholic Social Teaching. Ours is a very alive and participatory ministry. We strive to bring the light of the Gospel to bear on the social, economic, political, cultural, and environmental spheres of life. Our focus is the common good of all our sisters and brothers around the world, with particular emphasis on the poor and oppressed.
All are invited to take part in our meetings on the second Monday of each month at 7:00 p.m.
Events & Activities
Following the urging of Pope Francis, we are currently facilitating a process so that our parish can welcome and sponsor a refugee family.
Each year we take part in the Bread for the World Offering of Letters. Together with many other Christian communities in all the country, we write personal letters to our Senators and Representatives, as they prepare the budget, on behalf of the most needy people in our own country and around our world.
From time to time, we host Fair Trade sales in order to purchase from producers in foreign countries, so that they get a fairer price for their product. The goal also is to remind us all that as consumers, we are invited to be aware of the moral as well as financial impact we can have on the economy.
We are also ready to support all local, national, and international issues that seek peace through actions on behalf of peace and human rights.
