Social Justice Committee

 

The Social Justice Committee assists our parish to come to understand the relationship between Jesus Christ and his teaching in the political, economic, and social realities of the day by:

  • Encouraging the donations of non-perishable food items
  • Promoting awareness of the Canadian Catholic Organization for the Development and Peace and its programs
  • Assisting the Salvation Army with its annual Christmas Kettle Campaign
  • Supporting the local Soup Haven by sponsoring a supper at least once per year
  • Supporting the Yorkton Faith Build (Habitat for Humanity Yorkton)
  • Encouraging donations to the “Giving Tree” each Christmas, in support local organizations

 

Most recently, the Social Justice Committee is looking to assist St. Gerard Parish with the sponsoring of a refugee family.

If you would like to become involved with the committee, or with one aspect of their work, please contact Father Francis Hengen at 306.782.2449
