We are one human family whatever our national, racial, ethnic, economic and ideological differences. Catholic social teaching proclaims that we are our brothers’ and sisters’ keepers, wherever they live. We are called to work globally for justice and to recognize that “loving our neighbor” has global dimensions in an interdependent world.
Bread for the World/Offering of Letters
Bread for the World is a collective Christian voice urging our nation’s leaders to end hunger at home and abroad. This committee mobilizes the parish to magnify its voice in Washington, D.C. on behalf of poor and hungry people by organizing an annual letter writing campaign. The parish joins with hundreds of other congregations across the United States in urging Congress to enact a very specific reform to overcome hunger and poverty.
Habitat for Humanity.
Habitat is a faith-based organization that builds, remodels and sells houses to qualified home buyers who do “sweat equity” on the construction of their future home. Members of the parish Habitat Team volunteer on the 1st & 3rd Saturday of each month at the Habitat site where a crew supervisor directs the work of the volunteers. No skills are required.
