Our Advocacy Committee functions to provide education, opportunities for social action, and build partnerships in the community.As a parish, we recognize that unless there is systemic change, there will continue to be a community of those disenfranchised. It is our responsibility to become agents of change of unjust and inhumane systems and structures we observe or uncover. We want to become public advocates for those who bear the brunt of these injustices.
