Parish Social Ministry lives out of Catholic Social Teaching. It recognizes the dignity of human persons, responds to their needs, whatever they may be, whether hunger, housing, illness, loneliness, abuse, aging, bereavement, legal or advocacy. These needs may affect only one person or one family or they may arise from social policy that affects many.
The purpose of Parish Social Ministry is to coordinate the parish community's response to the needs of the community and to educate and support parishioners as they respond to these needs. Parish Social Ministry supports the parishioners to continue the work of Jesus in their lives and that of the community. Parish Social Ministry is grounded in the Catholic Social Teaching and in the principle that the work of charity and justice is the responsibility of all the parishioners through their baptismal call.
Through our baptism, we are all called to share in the mission of Jesus to love and serve God and each other. As members of the Body of Christ, we are Called to Care to those in need in our parish community and beyond.
