Our Issues

Historically, our work for justice has been focused on the three major principles of the Earth Charter: Social and Economic Justice; Ecological Integrity; and Democracy, Nonviolence and Peace.

Current Focus

Annually, the Congregation Justice Committee selects key areas on which to focus throughout the year. The committee's current justice priority is exploring the integral ecology methodology of social analysis, as prescribed by Pope Francis in his encyclical Laudato si': On care for our common home, through the lens of Gospel nonviolence and Just Peace.
