Social Justice Ministry

Mission

The Social Justice Ministry, rooted in Catholic Social Teaching, seeks to live out the Gospel by promoting peace, living in solidarity with society’s most vulnerable, advocating for change & equality for all, educating community members, and providing opportunities and resources to address and support social justice practices consistent with the ministry of Jesus Christ.

Vision

The Social Justice Ministry envisions a community of joyful disciples committed to act effectively in defense of human dignity, human rights, and the pursuit of justice and peace.

Prayer for Social Justice

 

Lord Jesus, Carpenter and King, supreme Sovereign of all men, look with tender mercy upon the multitudes of our day who bear the indignities of injustice everywhere. Raise up leaders in every land dedicated to Your standards of order, equity, and justice. Grant unto us, Lord Jesus, the grace to be worthy members of Your Mystical Body, laboring unceasingly to fulfill our vocation in the social apostolate of Your Church. Sharpen our intellects to pierce the pettiness of prejudice; to perceive the beauty of true human brotherhood. Guide our minds to a meaningful understanding of the problems of the poor, of the oppressed, of the unemployed, of all in need of assistance anywhere. Guide our hearts against the subtle lure of earthly things and undue regard for those who possess them. May we hunger and thirst after justice always.
Amen.
