Community Affairs

And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.

Hebrews 10:24-25

Deborah Hartman, Chairperson

The mission of the Community Affairs Commission is to integrate the Catholic Church’s social mission and social justice teaching into the life of the parish.  It also helps the parish witness to the love of God and neighbor both within and beyond the parish community.  Some of its activities include charity, outreach (providing the basic necessities to help people in crisis) and advocacy (speaking for those in society who have no voice).
