Living Faith, Doing Justice

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.  Since our founding in 2008, we have served more than 4,000 young adults through our intensive retreat-style immersion experiences to impoverished areas whom have completed more than 100,000 hours of service.  Named for the biblical passage that inspired them “Faith without works is dead” (James 2:26), our WorX programs engender in young people a deep understanding of systemic poverty and instill lifelong values of social justice through the lens of Catholic Social Teaching.  Our alumni have gone on to become impressive servant leaders in many diverse fields ranging from international aid in Uganda to corporate America.

“The Center for Faithjustice consistently provides programs that challenge students to rethink what they know about social justice, their faith and how those two things are inseparable. Their programs, especially JusticeworX, have shaped so many students into active, faith-filled stewards of peace, love, and solidarity. Their staff is extremely professional and prepared. They are the quintessential Catholic Social teaching organization in the Mid-Atlantic region and I will always make sure that my students have an opportunity to experience their good work.”   -Sam Deitch, St. Joe’s Prep Campus Minister, written September 10, 2014
