Social Justice Series Offered at St. Clare Parish

St. Clare has started a new series of talks to reflect on and promote Catholic Social Teaching. These talks have been put together by Quentin Dupont, a Jesuit seminarian assigned to St. Clare's for the month of July. Here for the summer, Quentin is studying philosophy at Fordham University in New York.

The talks began on July 5 with a presentation by Fr. Paul Fitzgerald, S.J. on Scriptural and Theological Foundations of Social Justice.

The next talk will be on Wednesday, July 12 when Quentin Dupont will give a talk on Economics and Globalization: the Catholic Call to Justice. On July 19, Gregory Kepferle, CEO of Catholic Charities will lead a reflection on immigration issues in light of the current debate in our country, with special attention to the situation in our local community.

The last session on July 26 will be offered by Fr. Rick Rodoni who will offer options for the future in social justice ministry including the possibility of starting a Just Faith program.

All presentations begin at 7:30 pm and will be the rectory at 725 Washington Street, Santa Clara.
