Social Action Office


The mission of the diocesan Social Action Office is to proclaim - mostly by action - the Gospel of Jesus Christ in today’s culture; to inform the baptized about the social dimension of the faith, and to invite the People of God to participate in initiatives which embody the principles of Catholic social teaching: respect for the dignity of the human person, promotion of the common good, the universal destination of goods and the preferential love for the poor, subsidiarity, participation,  solidarity; and care of creation.

The Social Action office actively promotes collaboration between parishes and local community organizations involved in efforts to overcome poverty and other forms of social exclusion.  Recognizing that this work cannot be done alone, the office collaborates with social action ministers in other dioceses; and in oecumenical and interreligious friendship.

Our Lady of Fatima Parish, St. Augustine of Canterbury Parish, St. John Brébeuf Parish, St. Kevin Parish, St. Luke Parish, St. Malachy Parish, St. Monica Parish, St. Veronica Parish, The Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace (diocesan council), Associates of the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary
