The Social Justice Ministry seeks to promote the Catholic Church’s teaching on social justice in our parish and community through education, advocacy, and outreach to those in need. The ministry’s decision and actions reflect the United States Catholic Bishops’ Seven Themes of Catholic Social Teaching, which provides a guide to building a just society and living lives of holiness amidst the challenges of modern society.  The following are the efforts the ministry currently  supports:

Advocacy efforts

Car Raffle

Fair Trade Bazaar

Hypothermia Prevention Shelter

Niῆo Jesύs  Parish in Manta, Ecuador
