Social Justice

‘Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.’-  Matthew 25:40

Parish opportunities in Social Justice seek to lead parishioners in the fulfillment of the Gospel call to love of neighbor and the Church's call to action on behalf of justice. We respond to the needs of the deprived, disabled, neglected, incarcerated and oppressed in the parish, in our community and in the world at large.  Of equal importance, we promote legislative advocacy for a consistent ethic of life including the rights of the unborn; we also promote advocacy seeking economic and political justice for the oppressed and empowerment of the marginalized in our society.
