Social Justice Education

JustFaith

JustFaith offers an opportunity for parishioners to experience a spiritual journey into compassion. Most of us long to be a generous and compassionate people. However, the opportunities to explore our tradition’s Catholic social teachings in a deliberate and engaging way have largely not been available. JustFaith, now offered in hundreds of parishes across the country, provides a lively and challenging format to read, view, discuss, pray, experience and be formed by the justice tradition, which changes lives, inspires faithful witness, and transforms the world through love and service.

We have had several JustFaith groups at St. Sabina since 2005. We would love to get another group started and are currently looking to begin a module titled Sanctity of ALL Life. This module will be a six week program designed to create respectful dialogue on Catholic social teaching of the dignity of all human life, from conception to natural death. The module offers action ideas and discussion for issues such as: abortion, in vitro fertilization, euthanasia, and the death penalty. If you are interested in participating in this JustFaith module, please contact Bridget Hernandez. www.justfaith.org
