“If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.”
- Mother Teresa
The Peace and Justice Ministry is comprised of people who are united by their faith and commitment to the Church’s teaching of human dignity and social justice. We seek to transform the principles of Catholic Social Teaching into concrete social actions through nurturing a greater public presence on justice and peace issues.
The Peace and Justice Ministry seeks to address specific local, national, and global issues—such as health care, housing, immigration, and workers’ rights-- that stand in the way of achieving full justice and peace in our society. Our work is guided by the Archdiocese of Chicago’s Office for Peace and Justice, and the tenets of Catholic Social Teaching.
