Our mission is to seek out justice issues, explore action strategies, and respond to these issues and needs as concerned Christian citizens. As Catholic Christians, we are guided by our Catholic social tradition.
Meetings are held on the third Thursday of the month, August through May, at 7:00-8:30 p.m. in the Parish Center. Members are involved in various projects and activities, based on individual interests/passions. Do you want to be better informed on local and global social justice issues? Come, join us. Whether it’s for information, networking, prayer, or action on behalf of justice, we welcome your gifts! Visitors and new members are welcome at any time.
History of the committee here at St. Tim's...
The Social Justice Committee has been an active committee since 1970. It began over 30 years ago as the Social Concerns Committee. Their annual St. Timothy's Overseas Projects (STOP) was begun in 1973. STOP continues today, and each Lenten season parishioners generously give to help projects all over the world. Over the years the committee has studied Pope John Paul II encyclical on Work and Justice. We also spent 1 year working on Coleman McCarthy's Teaching Peace guide. The dedication of St. Timothy's campus as a Peace Site was the result of 4 years work and advocacy by the members of the committee.
