PEACE AND JUSTICE MINISTRY TEAM
Membership is open to all who wish to heighten parishioners’ awareness of issues related to social justice. Members form an intentional community, with an emphasis on prayer and a commitment to action on behalf of the poor and vulnerable. Members work with the Leadership Team to plan and implement social justice programs and respond to the needs of the poor, the oppressed, the marginalized, and the excluded. The team also connects with other community groups and churches in a broad range of ministries, such as education, environmental concerns, advocacy, assistance to refugees, and service to the hungry, the homeless, and the unemployed. The Peace and Justice Ministry Leadership Team includes a Pastoral Associate, a Parish Council member, and a parish representative. The team provides leadership and vision, planning and coordination of activities within the ministry, and maintains communication with the other five ministry areas of the parish. The Peace and Justice ministry encourages a Catholic Christian response to issues of peace and justice.
