What is FaithJustice?

Rooted in the Catholic tradition, the Center for FaithJustice affirms the essential relationship between what we believe and how we live.

We join the words “Faith” and “Justice” into a single term to reflect our conviction that faith and justice are intimately bound together. God calls us – as individuals and as communities – to act on behalf of the vulnerable, weak and oppressed. Through CFJ’s work, we ask people of faith to revisit and renew their commitment to the Gospel and the common good. We are inspired by the Second Vatican Council’s teaching that “[t]he laity must take up the renewal of the temporal order as their own special obligation,” and thus “[e]verywhere and in all things they must seek the justice of God’s kingdom.” Through our WorX, we hope that people of goodwill grow in understanding of the spiritual life and deepen their commitment to pursuing social, economic, and political justice for all people.
