Social Justice

This group looks after our Food Pantry, as well as working with other groups with projects in Zurich. 

The ESCM raises funds for many charities, especially at our Annual International Mass and Food Festival. We also support Caritas Zurich and Caritas International with specific projects and disaster appeals.

In the ESCM we have a Food Pantry, where parishioners are asked to bring every month contributions and then each month these are distributed to parishioners in need. We alos have a fund that helps individuals and families in emergency need. The question now is, "How can we better provide help to our parishioners.?"

 What is needed?

 "What can we do that can make a difference.?"

If you are interested in offering help please get in touch with the office.

Social Justice is a wide domain that is unfortunately most often reduced to material charity, but it goes far beyond this scope. It entails both the material and the spiritual. It takes root first within us (spiritual), and then manifests itself in the world around us. Its settings are found in our families, relationships, neighbourhoods, work places, communities, on the streets, on the buses, in the church, within and without our borders. The slogan, " If you want Peace, work for Justice" comes from  the

MESSAGE OF HIS HOLINESS POPE PAUL VI FOR THE CELEBRATION OF THE  DAY OF PEACE 1 JANUARY 1972(read)
