The Human Concerns Commission Publishes New Compendium of Social Justice Articles

A New Social Justice Resource has been published in our Diocese...

The Human Concerns Commission of the Diocese of San Jose has just released a new resource that is now available for use in parishes and schools.

For the past year and a half, the Valley Catholic has printed a monthly Social Justice Teaching Column. Local community and faith leaders have contributed articles on topics critical to our community such as access to health care, affordable housing, immigration, care of the elderly, mental health, the death penalty, poverty, the war in Iraq, and others.

These articles have been compiled in a 30 page booklet that is available from the Office of Evangelization, Justice, & Peace. This booklet can be used as a resource to social justice committees, Just Faith groups, youth and young adult groups, catechetical programs, RCIA, and others.

We are very grateful to the Valley Catholic for printing these articles and to Michael Hawkins for compiling them!

To order, contact Sylvia at 408-983-0128 or by email at
