Catholics for Peace and Justice
Our Mission - “And the fruit of justice is sown in peace for those who cultivate peace.” James 3:18.  Responding to our baptismal call, Catholics for Peace and Justice strives to nurture faith in action for peace and justice for all people through prayer, education, and social action. Our belief and actions are grounded in Sacred Scripture and the tradition of Catholic Social Teaching. The goal of CPJ is to support the Church’s “consistent ethic of life,” which sees war, poverty and human rights abuses, as well as abortion, as part of the “culture of death” often condemned  by Saint Pope John Paul II.

Catholic Coalition for Migrants and Refugees Trip
In October, a group of 14 people from the Catholic Coalition for Migrants and Refugees traveled to the U.S./Mexican border to learn firsthand about the conditions of the migrants and asylum seekers. They participated in a five day immersion program. Now, after a few months, they have sorted through their feelings, and put together a very brief video about the experience. Watch the video here.

REFLECT


 

“Jesus was not a man for others. He was one with others. There is a world of difference in that. Jesus didn't seek the rights of lepers. He touched the leper even before he got around to curing him. He didn't champion the cause of the outcast. He was the outcast. He didn't fight for improved conditions for the prisoner. He simply said, 'I was in prison.'

The strategy of Jesus is not centered in taking the right stand on issues, but rather in standing in the right place—with the outcast and those relegated to the margins.”
― Gregory Boyle, Tattoos on the Heart: The Power of Boundless Compassion
