Advocacy

“Consequently, the promotion of justice is at the heart of a true culture of solidarity. It is not just a question of giving one’s surplus to those in need, but of helping entire peoples presently excluded or marginalized to enter into the sphere of economic and human development.” (Pope John Paul II, World Day of Peace Message 2001)

Holy Family promotes advocacy, outreach, and evangelization efforts in support of the Principles of Catholic social teaching.

Advocacy, education, and lobbying:

  • to promote the life and dignity of all human persons
  • to protect and support marriage and the family
  • to protect human rights and responsibilities
  • to promote the preferential option for the poor
  • to promote the dignity of work an the rights of workers
  • to maintain solidarity with all peoples
  • to care for all of God’s creation
