Human Concerns Committee
Please help through Director Service, Education, Advocacy and Empowerment.
"At the end of our lives, we will not be judges by how many diplomas we have received much money we have made or how many great things we have done. We will be judged by 'I was hungry and you gave me to eat. I was homeless and you took me in.'"
Our purpose is to lovingly build a world of peace and justice in the name of Jesus Christ. We discern needs of people in the parish and wider community, especially the poor, and identify resources to meet those needs, enlisting the active cooperation of parish members. Opportunities are offered to help fulfill the justice dimensions of scripture and our Church tradition, acknowledging that every Christian is called to service and to work for justice.
There are four components of this action:
Feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, sheltering the homeless, visiting the sick and the imprisoned
Forming our minds and hearts in the Gospel and Church teaching, learning about peace and justice issues
Taking political action, such as letter writing or protesting, to change policies and to advocate for oppressed groups
Leading oppressed groups to a discovery of their own power for change
We invite any parishioner interested in being involved to join us at our monthly meetings on the second Tuesday of each month 7 p.m. in the CFC.For further information contact:
