Social Justice

“In these challenging days, we believe that the Catholic
community needs to be more than ever a source of clear moral
vision and effective action. We are called to be the “salt of the
earth”
and “light of the world” in the words of the Scriptures
(cf. Mt 5:13-16). This task belongs to every believer and every
parish.
It cannot be assigned to a few or simply delegated to
diocesan or national structures. The pursuit of justice and peace
is an essential part of what makes a parish Catholic.”


     -USCCB -
Communities of Salt and Light: Reflections on the
                   Social Mission of the Parish.

  Respect Life Committee
 

"Human rights are not a privilege conferred by government. They are every human being's entitlement by virtue of his humanity. The right to life does not depend, and must not be declared to be contingent, on the pleasure of anyone else, not even a parent or a sovereign." (Mother Theresa -- "Notable and Quotable," Wall Street Journal, 2/25/94, p. A14)

Our Respect Life Committee functions under the
larger umbrella of Social Justice through Social
Ministry

The All Saints' Parish the Respect Life Committee promotes the teachings of the Church - that as Catholics we believe that all life is precious and sacred from the moment of conception until natural death. It is our work to protect and enhance the lives of those most vulnerable at both the
beginning and end of life.

 

There are many areas of need that fall under the umbrella of
Social Justice and Social Ministry. To learn more about Social Ministry,

    Faithful Citizenship

“In the Catholic Tradition, responsible citizenship is a virtue, and participation
in political life is a moral obligation. This obligation is rooted in our baptismal
commitment to follow Jesus Christ and to bear Christian witness in all we do.”

United States Conference of Catholic Bishops
Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship, No. 13
