How do local Catholics advocate for a more just society in Georgia?
Join Faith in Action Wednesday, February 21, 6:30-8:00pm in the Health ministry room, when a parishioner will relate her experience when she recently joined Bishop Ned and other Archdiocesan leaders to advocate at the Georgia Capitol on behalf of the intellectually disabled. The experience will be shared within the context of the role each of us plays in civil society. This topic connects to the Catholic social teaching theme of Rights and Responsibilities.

A prayer, from the Season of Creation 2022 Celebration Guide:
Loving God, who hears every voice, knows each cry of injustice, and is attentive to the suffering of the earth: teach us to listen. Bring healing to our lives, that we may protect the world and not prey on it, that we may listen to the world you have created and not close ourselves off from it. Reveal to us the ways in which we have failed to hear your voice in how we treat the earth.
