Please join us as we dive into scripture and the principles of Catholic Social Teaching as a foundation to guide our discussion on justice in our community today. One of our topics will be the lack of affordable housing in our area, as well as other real -world issues. We will use scripture to develop a road map and help us make the changes we wish to see in our community.
