 St. Stan’s Social Justice Committee

Would you like to become more familiar with the principles of Catholic social teaching? Are you curious about the biblical roots of social justice? Do you have interest in looking at economic justice issues  through the lens of Catholic social teaching? Would you like to help others in the parish become aware, educated, and act for justice in the public arena? Join us the fourth Tuesday of each month at the Parish Center (395 Superior Street, across the street from the church building). Contact Cheryl Peterson at 651-278-6764 or peterson_cheryl@comcast.net with questions.

Social Justice Activities

The Social Justice Committee is Taking a Summer Vacation. We will resume our third Tuesday of the month committee meetings in the fall. Individual members of the committee will still be doing their “homework” this summer, learning all they can about economic and environmental justice issues. Think: affordable housing, global climate change, human trafficking, immigration & more. If you’re looking for a cool read for hot summer nights, Pope Francis’s encyclical on the environment, Laudato Si, is available in book form from a number of outlets, or you can find the complete text for FREE on the world wide web! Just google Laudato Si Full Text. If you would like to be on our email list, send a note to peterson_cheryl@comcast.net. Discern if you would like to join us in the fall as we plan ways the parish community can become more aware of and educated about justice with our lens of Catholic social teaching, and consider ways we can act for justice in the public arena.
