“SOCIAL JUSTICE NEWS” - The Social Justice Committee will be offering all parishioners at Masses next weekend June 8th/9th reusable shopping bags to help cut down on the use of plastic shopping bags. Hopefully as a faith community together we can cut down on the use of plastic shopping bags which break down into micro-plastics and enter the food chain, the environment and all creatures. The plastic bags also enter our environment and destroy our species vital to the environment. One free bag per adult, 2 per family with additional bags available for a $1 donation. - Thanks to all who brought their electronics to be recycled. Over the 2 weekends parishioners and Msgr. Gadoury School donated a total of 2,300 pounds of electronics to Goodwill Industries which offers educational and job training opportunities for people with disabilities and other challenges. - The Social Justice Committee is now planning forums for the Fall as well as following up on ideas generated at our forums for Homelessness and Care for Our Environment.

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.
