Our response to injustice calls us to personal and social transformation
We see spirituality and justice as one and commit ourselves to live this out in all our relationships. Systemic evils deprive people of their intrinsic rights and working to help restore these rights is the work of justice.

2nd Catholic Day of Action
Catholic organizations have launched a nonviolent campaign to end the traumatizing abuse of immigrant children and their families by the U.S. government. After a very powerful July 18th event in DC we are planning a second national Day of Catholic Action for Immigrants—Wednesday, September 4,Newark, NJ, 10:00 am to 12:00 noon.
Please mark your calendars and plan to join us in Newark. Once again the event will include prayer, ritual, and a call to action by Catholic leaders. Cardinal Joseph Tobin, Archbishop of Newark, has agreed to accompany us. Given the continued injustice, there will also be an opportunity, for those who choose, to engage in nonviolent action of civil disobedience.
