Letter for our Parish Life Handbook for a short explanation of our parish’s ecojustice social justice focus – the history at our parish, the connection to Catholic Social Teaching and the call to Act, Advocate, Assess, Learn and Pray together.
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.
Excerpts and reflections connected to ecojustice and Catholic Social Teaching. Valuable for rooting our advocacy and social justice efforts in CST and communicating those connections.
An addition to our new employee and volunteer leader guides for sustainability best practices that our St. Ignatius community follow.
