Social Justice Ministry Mission Statement
Inspired by the Gospel to love one another and empowered by our shared parish vision, One Lord, One Faith, One Family, the Social Justice Ministry of St. Noel calls all parishioners to join hands in common action for charity and justice.
The call to charity and justice is integral, not optional, to our faith. It is our hope that each person's needs be recognized and that each person's gifts be appreciated.
In our universal poverty, we witness that charity and justice are God's gifts to be both rendered and received.
The Gospel compels us, church teaching implores us, and our own nature leads us to an ever widening relationship with each other, our parish, our community, our nation, our church, and our world.
