Parish Social Ministry

Parish Social Ministry advocates, educates, provides leadership and service to the people in their task of bringing the church’s social mission to life.

“The Church has a threefold responsibility to proclaim the word of God, celebrate the sacraments, and exercise the ministry of charity. These duties presuppose each other and are inseparable.”

– (God is Love #25 – Pope Benedict XVI)
