Social Justice Ministry

The Social Justice Ministry is a city wide committee consisting of 3 members from each Catholic Parish/Parish site. We meet once a month except for the summer months.  We are involved with helping provide meals for a week at the Fox Valley Warming Shelter; Jesse Tree, providing needed items for shelters, Mother and Unborn Baby Care, and Haven of Hope on a rotating basis, and keeping updated regarding social concerns in our area.  The Prayer Shawl Ministry also grew out of this group.  Please pray about the possibility of joing us.

According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church: The duty of making oneself a neighbor to others and actively serving them becomes even more urgent when it involves the disadvantaged, in whatever area this may be - "As you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me." (CCC # 1932)

The Mission Statement of Social Concerns Committee:
