Lord, how good it is for us to be here -- Matthew 17

Peace and Justice Newsletters




“Salt and Light” and      “Justice, Peace, and Life”


Awareness alone does not make our world a better place!

Move from awareness to “doing.”  Take action on issues related to social justice, peace, life, human dignity, care for God’s Creation, and the Common Good!


The Diocesan newsletters below (Salt and Light, and Justice, Peace, and Life) contain a wide variety of opportunities to learn about current social justice issues, and participate in specific service, advocacy and actions at the local, regional, and national levels.

You will find highlights of current societal issues, resources, prayers, events, lectures, educational programs, meetings, petitions, legislative updates, organizations, gospel reflections, ministries, vigils, Diocesan initiatives, ecumenical experiences, opportunities to dialogue and join with others in action, and much more.
