Social Justice committee Holy Trinity parish Faith communities of olqm, sacred heart and holy family
“SOCIAL JUSTICE NEWS” Our next Social Justice Forums will focus on these two themes of Catholic Social Teaching: “Life and Dignity of the Human Person,” and “Call to Family Community and Participation.” The Family is the fundamental unit of the churchit’s where we first encounter our capacity for love, a sense of community, and our relationship with God. Sometimes families suffer difficulty and stress. - Save the Date Sunday December 8th 9am to 10:15am in the Hospitality Room. Topic for Advent is “Issues affecting Elderly and Caregivers” Coffee and pastry will be served. - NEW MEMBERS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME on our committee! Come and find out what we can do together to reflect on the Church's teachings on justice! - Our goal: 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.
