Social Justice and Peace Commission
The Social Justice and Peace Commission (SJP) acts as a focal point for initiatives and activities at Our Lady of Hope and beyond that enhance the economic, political, and social rights of all.
The SJP Mission is to give life to the social teachings of the Catholic Church that will inspire our parish community to participate in the building of a merciful society, one that follows Christ in loving one another and in respecting the human dignity of every person. We work toward this mission by coordinating opportunities for parishioners to fulfill our responsibility as a Catholic community: to address the moral challenges of our time according to the seven themes of Catholic Social Teaching.
• Life and Dignity of the Human Person
• Call to Family, Community, and Participation
• Rights and Responsibilities
• Option for the Poor and Vulnerable
• Dignity of Work and the Rights of Workers
• Care for God’s Creation
Join Us! We meet monthly (except July) by Zoom. Please contact the parish office to get connected to members of the SJP Commission. Check out our recent blog post about about Caring for God’s Creation here.
The support of the parish continues to be critical to the success of the Commission’s initiatives. Thank you!
