Living the Dream: Faith, Justice, Action!
Deanery 7 Day of Reflection on Social Justice
Saturday, January 13, 2007,Holy Family Parish
, 4848 Pearl Ave, San Jose
9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
On Saturday, January 13, 2007, the parishes of Deanery 7 (the Southwest Deanery) will come together for a day of prayer, study and reflection on the social justice teachings of the Catholic Church and the call to live our lives according to those teachings. The goal of the day is to help the people of each parish identify the issues that most compel them to action as well as to find ways in which we can collaborate on such action as a deanery.
This day will provide all who participate with a chance to begin to form a plan to help to transform the world. We will be addressing important issues that are impacting our local community, our nation, and our world: injustices caused by poverty, lack of respect for life in all its forms, exploitation of workers, inhumane immigration laws, inadequate health and safety regulations, fair trade, responsibility for our environment and other issues that involve us as part of God’s family. Keynote speakers will be Fr. Jon Pedigo and Greg Kepferle from Catholic Charities. Workshops and discussion groups will be offered, as well as lunch.
This day of Social Justice is open to people from all parishes in our diocese. Registration is $15 and includes lunch.
