The purpose of the Peace and Justice Commission is to establish, facilitate, and review activities and educational programs that promote the principles set forth in the Mission Statement: "to educate, inform, and call all members of our parish community to a responsible and Christ-like action regarding social, economic, political, environmental, or any other issue that concerns human dignity and the quality of human life worldwide".
Some of the programs include: Campaign for Human Development, Care Barrels, Christmas in July, The Giving Tree, Tender Mercies, letter writing for Legislative Advocacy, Project 5000, Matthew 25 in conjunction with the Mission Committee, Ribbons for Peace, and other important issues, that include: Fair Trade Coffee Sales, Thanksgiving and Christmas Food Baskets, and support for Dr. Rich Fry’s Medical Mission Trips.
The meetings are always open and we welcome everyone to come, listen and learn. One person can make a difference! Can you?
