Community at St. Joseph University Parish
While our society often exalts individualism, the Catholic tradition teaches that human beings grow and achieve fulfillment in community. We realize our rights and dignity through our relationship with others. We have a responsibility to participate in and contribute to the multitude of communities in society.
When making individual and collective decisions, we have a responsibility to consider the good of the whole community, over and above the interests of a few. We are one body: when one suffers, we all suffer.
