Office of Social Action
JPAT will begin anew in March-2015
The Justice and Peace Advocacy Team, we want you to know JPAT will begin anew in March with monthly one-hour meetings via Go To Meeting.
Our first will be held Sunday, March 15 at 3:00 PM., and subsequent meetings will alternate between Sunday afternoons and Monday evenings to accommodate different schedules. With Go To Meeting, you avoid driving and participate either by phone or over the internet. Meeting notes will go out a short time after each meeting so even those who are unable to participate in person will know what is taking place.
The intention of JPAT is to advocate for change - not just identify what is needed within our Diocese to address injustice or gaps in service, but also develop realistic solutions and advocate for their implementation. We hope you will choose to join us. Please RSVP to Esmeralda Guerrero at firstname.lastname@example.org

We recently sat down with young adults we work with here in the Social Action Office. We posed to them the question, How has God Called You? We find their answers inspiring! Their understanding of Catholic Social Teaching and being true to one’s calling may be informative for people of all ages, youth, young adults and for us who have been involved in social ministry for many years. We look forward to hearing comments on the project and ways you intend to share the video, and any subsequent feedback from your audiences. Peace and all good! Kent Ferris, OFS
