Ignatian Social Justice is a ministry of the Church of St. Ignatius Loyola made up of parishioners committed to:
(1) raising awareness of current Catholic social teaching; and
(2) advocating for social justice on timely and underappreciated issues.
The volunteer group embraces the responsibility to inform, engage, and mobilize parishioners to promote social justice in our local community. The ministry divides its time between advocacy and promoting awareness through a dialog with local leaders on social justice issues. The ministry is especially committed to pursuing issues and perspectives that would not otherwise be apparent to St. Ignatius parishioners.
The parish partners with a variety of local social service agencies. These organizations provide volunteer opportunities for our parishioners and needed service in our community. We connect them to the parish through a number of events: Epiphany dinner, Parish Work Day, Space in the Bulletin to promote their activities, Reflections during Mass and our Giving Tree at Christmas.
