The Social Justice Committee
“Faith without works is dead. The Parish will come alive through the three-fold approach of prayer/worship, learning and action.”
The mission of the Social Justice Committee is to promote Catholic Social Teaching within the parish community and beyond through “The Two Feet of Christian Service.” Direct service involves collecting for the local food bank and seasonal migrant workers; hosting the men of V.I.S.I.O.N.; setting up the Christmas Giving Tree. Their mission also includes education and advocacy work: “Coffee and Conversation” events; the sale of Fair Trade products and letters to legislators on issues of peace, justice and care of earth.
“Our greatest need is to provide educational opportunities such as retreat, workshops, speakers, educational videos and DVDs to motivate and inspire people to service. A salaried full or part-time justice/peace/earth coordinator would help us further this cause within the parish of Saint Therese and beyond. Committee members are overwhelmed with the work that needs to be done.”
