The Justice & Peace Office carries out our parish mission to proclaim the reign of God by offering hope to those who hunger for human dignity. We do this by serving and being with people who are poor or marginalized in the community outside our parish.
We serve Christ when we serve others.
Sometimes, when we least expect it,
we’re transformed by recognizing Christ
in the eyes, words or touch
of a person we encounter.
