Catholic Charities is partnering with JustFaith Ministries to deepen awareness of and commit to Catholic social teaching. Catholic Charities Justice and Peace Staff is eager to work with any parish that would like to start a JustFaith program.


JustFaith, a thirty-week adult educational and formational program, offers an opportunity for parishioners to experience a spiritual journey into compassion. JustFaith provides a lively and challenging format to read, view, discuss, pray, experience and be formed by the justice tradition that changes lives, inspires faithful witness, and transforms the world through love and service. Across the country, JustFaith has proven to be a potent and successful strategy for expanding and energizing parishioner commitment to address human suffering.


JustFaith consists of weekly sessions and employs books, videos, lectures, discussion, prayer, two weekend retreats and four immersion experiences. The intent is to provide a tapestry of learning opportunities that emphasize and enliven the remarkable justice tradition of the Church. Participants are not only exposed to a substantive and demanding course of study but are also afforded the privilege of becoming community with other participants and sharing a journey of faith and compassion that is both life-giving and challenging.


In addition to the 30-week program, Justfaith Ministries offers a program for youth, JusticeWalking, and JustMatters, which will offer 8-week modules on specific themes. The first module on Climate Change is now available.
