Our GOALS as a Committee: To build awareness about current justice issues (poverty, homelessness, immigration, etc.) and how we respond as Catholics living out our faith. Social justice is a constitutive dimension of Catholic Christianity.
DOMESTIC VIOLENCE Are you or someone you know experiencing Domestic Violence (verbal, emotional, psychological or physical abuse)? One in three to four women have experienced some form of physical violence. Children exposed to domes- tic violence are negatively impacted in countless ways. Although to a lesser degree, men also are victims of domestic, emotional and psychological abuse. Let us help! The Office of Life and Family is offering women free counseling (as appropriate), emotional support, and advice from a Catholic perspective, re- sources, and referrals to outside agencies/Catholic Counselors as appropriate. Maybe you just want to talk! For more information, please call 401-278-2518 or 401-278-2517.
