Social Justice

Through the sacrament of baptism, we are joined to Jesus Christ in His mission to the Kingdom here on earth. By virtue of this sacrament, we are committed to live out our faith through works of charity and service to the people of God, caring for the poor, the weak, and the suffering.

The Social Justice Committee of St. Jane Frances de Chantal lives out this commitment through an active ministry of prayer and service, and an ongoing education program for the parish. We are the eyes that see what is wrong and make systemic changes in society to correct them. We are the hands and feet that go about making the necessary changes so that every human being lives in dignity. We are the voice of challenge to the adults and young people in the parish to support this work with their prayers, resources, time and talents to do as Jesus demands: to feed the hungry, clothe the poor and visit the sick and imprisoned.

The Social Justice Committee objectives are:

  • To promote educational opportunities to the parish relating to social justice concerns;
  • To participate in Archdiocesan- sponsored training events that educate participants on Catholic Social teaching;
  • To increase parish awareness of ongoing legislative and/or global issues that impact matters of Justice and Peace;
  • To evaluate our ministries and to find opportunities to expand our outreach programs within the parish.
