The Mission and Purpose
Our baptism calls us to hear and proclaim the Gospels; to celebrate the sacraments and deepen the life of grace within ourselves and to serve the needs of others in the Church, in the community and throughout the world. In a special way this vocation calls us to promote and define the dignity of each human person. The Peace and Social Justice Commission has a threefold purpose.
- To help people understand and act upon the conviction that justice is an essential element of the Gospel that flows from the meaning of the Eucharist.
- To help parishioners see that the work of peace and social justice is the work of the whole parish.
- To help parishioners see that the actions of peace and social justice must take place locally, nationally, and world wide.
The Commission collaborates with the other parish commissions whenever possible in implementing programs. The parish Commission also collaborates with the Diocesan Peace/Social Justice Commission.
