Social Justice

This group looks after the ESCM Food Pantry, where parishioners are asked to bring monthly contributions which are then distributed to parishioners in need, and also to passers-by asking for immediate and urgent help.

The Advent Giving Tree, which collects Christmas presents for parishioners in need, is also organized by this same group.

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 on 1 JANUARY 1972 (read)

How can we in the ESCM work for justice?
