"Ours is a faith of action. The aim of the Social Justice Committee is to make real our biblical and baptismal call to “do justice”, and to “bring good news to the oppressed”. The committee leads parishioners to develop their understanding of social problems and injustices, to commit themselves to action and outreach, and to address both local and global concerns. It is active in refugee support and is a liaison with Development and Peace. Committee members become involved in a variety of issues, such as environmental stewardship, fair trade, support of charities at home and abroad, inter-church projects, restorative justice and North-South equity. Meetings are held monthly from September through June. New members are welcome to join at any time of the year."
Social Justice members/volunteers raise funds for various projects by hosting garage sales at your home, and provide you with a charitable tax receipt. Click here to learn more.
