Social Justice Ministries
NEXT MEETING AUGUST 27 5:30 Rectory
Our Mission Statement:
Seeing and serving Christ in the face of our brothers and sisters in our parish and community through action and advocacy.
The book of James reflects the fact that–If our lives do not show good works, then our faith is dead. Jesus would not have turned his back on those in need.
These are some examples of the Church’s role in social justice.
- Promoting the dignity of every life (including the unborn).
- Coming to the aid of fellow parishioners who face tragedy and difficulty.
- Feeding the hungry from food pantries.
- Promoting community outreach programs.
It is important to know the truth of our faith and to incorporate our faith in our daily lives—-not just a Sunday obligation, but an everyday obligation.
Living the Church’s definition of social justice is living as Jesus taught each of us to live.
Social justice falls upon the individual, but one person cannot fulfill the obligation alone. We must work together–through organized bodies–as a member of a group whose purpose is to identify the needs locally, regionally, nationally and globally.
Social justice is being aware. We are responsible for one another and we should make sure that all have equal chances to succeed in life.
We have been serving our church and community since October 2013. Here are our current parish members. New members are always welcome.
