What We Do

The mission of the Center for FaithJustice is to inspire the next generation of leaders by creating programs to serve those in need and educate for justice in the Catholic tradition.

Named for the biblical passage that inspired them, “Faith without works is dead” (James 2:26), our signature WorX programs unfold through week-long mission retreats incorporating equal parts direct service to those in need and intensive reflection on Catholic Social Teaching.  Read more.

  • “I would really like to commend CFJ’s staff. They were a model team-- awesome with our students at both the service sites and during the content activities.”

  • "WorX participants truly come home ignited – they are absolutely on fire to change the world."

    Parish Partner
  • “I want to commend you on ServiceworX. My son came home moved and changed. In his words, the week was ‘amazing’ and he ‘would love to do an additional week.’ That’s incredible, to hear a 13 year old boy so impacted, sharing details and stories with me. . . And this is a boy of few words!”

  • “WorX volunteers were consistently cheerful and enthusiastic in their service, regardless of the task at hand. It is always great to have the youthful energy and spirit that the WorX groups bring.”

    Community Partner
  • “It’s safe to say I owe my vocation, career, and even my marriage to the Center for FaithJustice!  I am just one of many."

  • “I gained confidence this week through connecting with the people I served and from my experiences, was challenged to pursue my calling to help others.”
