Sowing Seeds for Social Change


Dare to Look at the World Through the Eyes of Those Experiencing Poverty


JustFaith is a small-group process for those looking for a safe place to discuss social issues through the lens of faith. In community with others, JustFaith invites participants to take a spiritual journey of faith and compassion. JustFaith is an inspiring and energizing program that encourages a renewed commitment to care for those in need in our world.

Engaging Spirituality

EngagingSpirituality is a small-group program that invites participants to deepen their faith or spirituality through prayerful listening, sharing from the heart, and exploring what it means to “love our neighbors.”

Living Our Faith

Living Our Faith is a program that helps participants put their “faith into action” by providing meaningful volunteer contributions to the community and world. The program is offered as a one-day workshop or in a seven-session format.

Rethink Poverty

Spend a simulated month in poverty and gain a better understanding of what it’s like to live below the poverty line. This interactive event promotes poverty awareness, increases understanding, and inspires local change.

Rethink Poverty Simulation - November 8, 2017 - join us for an evening simulation designed to help individuals begin to understand what it might be like to live in a typical low-income family trying to survive month-to-month. The simulation is a stand-alone experience, and is open to all interested persons. For more information, or to register, click the button below.


We dream of a world that is more just and peaceful;

a world where all have a seat at the table… We dream of doing what God is calling us to do; being what God is calling us to be… We dream of opportunities for our family members and friends to see the world through the eyes of those who are experiencing poverty and vulnerability; to see the world through our eyes… We dream of more support for social justice and advocacy efforts in our parishes, congregations, and community; more people doing the hard work of Gospel justice… We dream of opportunities to sit in dialogue with others; for opportunities to share our struggles and our hopes for a better world…
