Articulate, Advocate, and Act
As an arm of the Justice & Peace Committee of St. Ignatius Catholic Community, we are dedicated to the service of faith and the promotion of justice.
We are called and challenged to articulate, advocate, and act upon critical social, economic, cultural and political issues that affect us, our city and our world. We are also called to be a resource to provide parishioners with opportunities to live out their faith through justice. The Committee aims to address the challenges that affect the work of justice in our community. The values of our Church teachings direct our efforts to work for peace and justice. As such we:
- Advocate for paid sick leave for Maryland workers in community
- Mobilize fellow parishioners around issues of economic justice
- Persuade legislators to pass paid sick leave legislation during the Legislative Session
- Reach out to the St. Ignatius Community and beyond to engage in discussion and determine a course of action on issues of economic policy
One of our goals is to deepen our understanding of the principles of Catholic social teaching and then, through word and action, help to integrate these principles more fully into the life of our Parish community.
