Advent Greetings

Advent Blessings and Welcome to this edition of Faith Doing Justice.

I hope that amid the busy activities of the season, that you will take a moment to view some of the information in this month's online newsletter.

We have a new intern in the office for Catholic Relief Services, Jennifer Ferber. Her inspiring story is included. Also included is a story from a local community organizer from PIA who describes her work in helping to provide assistance to local government in Baton Rouge following the Katrina disaster.

At this date, we are awaiting to see if the governor will grant clemency in the case of Stanley "Tookie" Williams. Bishop Patrick McGrath has issued a statement which is included calling for clemency. Also, attached is the new statement from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops in opposition to the death penalty.

I hope that you will take a moment also to view the many Upcoming Events. There are many opportunities for you to be involved in the work of justice in our local Church and community.

Many blessings!
