“If you want Peace, work for Justice”
– His Holiness Pope Paul VI, The Celebration of the Day of Peace, Jan. 1, 1972
Continuing education on the Church’s concern for the poor, the natural environment, and for the migrant fuel the drive of parishioners to seek justice both in theory and in deeds.
The Peace & Justice Committee serves as the link between the parish and the larger community–educating, advocating, and promoting peace, justice, and social concerns relevant to Catholic Social Teaching. The Church’s social teaching focuses on building a just society and living lives of holiness amidst the challenges of modern society; it includes topics such as: the dignity of human life, human rights, care for the Earth and its resources, the preferential option for the poor and vulnerable, workers’ rights, and solidarity with all our human family. See our Justice Advocacy Articles, as well as our series Consistent Life Ethic (CLE).
Please pray for the ministry work of our parish, especially our leadership committees. Your voice would be helpful in our Peace & Justice Committee discussions. Please join us at the next meeting. The committee normally meets on the first Monday of each month (unless a holiday interferes and then it is the following Monday) at 7:30 PM in the St. Francis School teachers’ lounge. I hope to see you there.
