“SOCIAL JUSTICE NEWS” The Social Justice Committee will meet on Monday January 13th at 7pm in the Hospitality Room. Parishioners are invited to attend. We will be discussing ideas for our Lenten forum. - 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.
DOMESTIC VIOLENCE Are you or someone you know experiencing Domes- tic 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 4012782518 or 4012782517.
