Our Social Justice Team hopes to enhance our parish charitable activities by exploring more opportunities to promote Social Justice. Examples of some of our previous Social Justice initiatives include: attendance at a vigil in Queen’s Park where we prayed with Archbishop Johnson for the provincial budget and how it might address some of the concerns of the poor, passing resolutions at vestry around affordable housing and social assistance payments and attended a workshop on “Inscribed Justice” to work on writing to politicians.
We need to look for more opportunities to promote Social Justice; to help create a society based on the dignity of the individual.
The Social Justice Team would welcome any comments or questions anyone has about Social Justice.
Thanks are also due to David Curtis, Anne Foerster, Cathie Figueira and Tamara Colbourne who make up your Social Justice Team.
