The Social Justice Department in the archdiocese works to engage in action-oriented activities that promote and enliven the social teaching of the Church in our communities. The three main themes are Justice, Peace, and Human Rights. Everything that the department does is tied to the Catholic Social Teachings of the Catholic Church.
The Social Justice Office works closely with the Reverence for Life and the Social Justice Commissions. Commissions are comprised of representatives from across the Archdiocese and serve to discern, plan. and carry out annual campaigns on behalf of the Bishop, to engage and support the work of parishes. If you are interested in participating or learning more about either of these commissions, please contact Tashia.
