The time is ripe!
ANNOUNCING THE FORMATION OF
ST. BENEDICT'S SOCIAL JUSTICE GROUP
Monday 28 February at 7:00 PM in the Tobin Room
You are invited!
Recently, many "big idea" things have taken place at the parish:
-Reaching Out 2 Africa weekend,
-JustFAITH classes held here recently,
-Our Youth Group's party at Vive La Casa,
-National Immigration Week,
-my recent awareness of unemployment issues in the parish,
-connections to the Diocesan Peace and Justice Commission.
Not to mention the phenomenal outreach work of our St. Vincent De Paul Society, the Ladies of Charity, and so many other individual acts of charity and justice from parishioners.
I am hoping that our new group will keep social justice issues "on the front burner." I envision it working on a few projects per year as well. I think we would only need to meet occasionally; once we agree on our projects, we could work in committees via email for the most part.
But perhaps you have other ideas and directions? Please come to the meeting on 28 February. You are the experts in this area, so please share your ideas with us!
For some people, Catholic Social Teaching is a new discovery. Yet our Catholic Faith is so profound in this area! I hope that our new group will help make the teachings of the Church more widely known and incorporate them into the very fabric of parish life from now on.
Please help us get the word out about our first meeting.
MONDAY 28 FEBRUARY 2011
7:00 PM in the TOBIN ROOM
FYI - Use the Eggert Road parking lot, enter the School door, walk up the steps, and turn right to access the Tobin Room/Church Library.
See you there!
