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 2019, 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.

Come, Holy Spirit of Truth.
Give us the courage to speak uncomfortable truths,
to face painful truths,
to accomplish difficult truths,
to dare powerful truths,
to seek healing truths.
Come, Spirit of Truth.
Breathe within us and inspire us to speak
words of wisdom and challenge,
words of lament and sorrow,
words of resolve and renewal,
words of justice and accountability,
words of welcome and inclusion,
words of healing and peace.
Come, Spirit of Truth, and set us free.
Come, Holy Spirit.
Fill the hearts of your faithful.
Enkindle within us the fire of your love.
Send forth your Spirit,
And we shall be re-created.
And you will renew the face of the earth.
Let the Church say, “Amen.”
