The Peace and Justice Committee seeks to proclaim the living Gospel, examining root causes of injustice and working for a more just and sustainable world. Our focus is two-fold:
• Education: raising awareness of important issues and providing information to educate parishioners about the story behind the issue – the root causes of unjust situatiions – and ways they can be challenged.
• Advocacy: providing opportunities for action to address root causes, whether by making a public statement, signing a petition, writing a letter or op-ed, joining a demonstration or contacting elected and policy officials.
Meetings and programs – often in the Mary Chapel after 11:30 Mass – are scheduled monthly from September thru May and are announced via Peace and Justice email list and in the Sunday Bulletin. One or two meetings occur during the summer – dates, times and locations TBD.
For more information or to be added to the email list, contact co-chairs Tracey Tynan and Larry Ruth at firstname.lastname@example.org.
