Tuesday, April 8, 2008, 11:30 AM - 12:00 AM
Saint Mary Cathedral will have a Social Justice Ministry. The process began in fall 2007 with a couple of meetings with Rebecca McIlwain of Austin Interfaith
and continued in a January meeting with Fr. Bud. Our next meeting is scheduled for April 8 at 11:30 a.m. at Dominican Joe Coffee Shop, which is located at 515 S. Congress Ave.
The next step in forming the SJM is to bring together a dozen or so parishioners as a core organizing team who will, in turn (perhaps beginning this summer), invite all parishioners to a deeper understanding and living of Catholic social teaching. The purpose of the meeting on April 8 is to clarify how to reach out to those parishioners whom God is calling to serve the parish in this ministry. The Social Justice Ministry, once established, will provide ongoing encouragement to all parishioners, with the net effect that all socially-oriented ministries of the parish have more and more-active participants.
