CFJ is happy to work with catechetical leaders who are looking to more fully integrate Catholic Social Teaching and service and justice experiences into their ministries.
- Trying to find a way to make a service experience more meaningful and lasting for your students?
- Hoping to hammer home the connection between faith and service?
- Working on an educational social justice element to supplement service experiences?
CFJ draws on years of innovative programming and our team members’ widespread areas of expertise to provide unique consultation to Catholic parishes and schools. And our ever-growing library is a great place to find resources for youth ministry, justice advocacy and the practice of faithjustice.
To arrange a visit to the CFJ, or to schedule a consultation, please contact Rocky Balsamo.
NETWORK’s Nuns on the Bus
Is Coming to Town to Support
Commonsense Immigration Reform
A “Friend Raiser” Event, co-sponsored by
The Center for FaithJustice and the Church of Saint Ann
Wednesday, May 29th at 7:00 P.M.
1253 Lawrenceville Road, Lawrenceville, NJ 08648
Come and learn about the need for sensible immigration reform in our country
and what YOU can do to help!
There is NO CHARGE for this event – bring a friend!
These inspiring women were welcomed last year by thousands of well-wishers
as they traveled from state to state in support of federal budget priorities that address the needs of struggling families.
This year, they are traveling across the United States – 6,500 miles over 15 states – 53 events in 40 cities –
standing with immigrants, faith-filled activists, and Catholic Sisters who serve immigrant communities.
Their message is clear:
We need commonsense immigration policies that reflect
our values, not our fears. Congress must act now!
