Social Justice

As a Christian community, we are committed to the life of Christ and the Church through our service to the greater community.

Often times in the Catholic faith we refer to this as Social Justice. Some of the ways our community seeks to reach out to the greater community include: Corazón, Oakland Elizabeth House, St. Vincent de Paul and Rosary for Peace.
