Social Justice Ministry

The mission of the Archdiocesan Social Justice Ministry is to strengthen our commitment to Catholic Social Teaching by education, awareness, engagement with others, and collaborative ACTION for change. Our objectives are to:

  1. Help eradicate root causes of poverty and injustice in the Archdiocese, nationally and globally
  2. Build a network of diverse and inclusive faith-based Social Justice organizations
  3. Mobilize grassroots support in local parishes and collaboratives
  4. Advocate for systemic change in unjust policies and structures.
