JustFaith Ministries is series of programs created to help bring awareness of Catholic Social teaching, our faith’s call to justice, and prepare individuals and parishes for the work of social ministry. Founded by Executive Director Jack Jezreel, M.Div. in 1989, JustFaith works in partnership with the Catholic Campaign for Human Development, Catholic Charities USA, Catholic Relief Services and Bread for the World. The Catholic Social Teaching Ministry has hosted several programs at St. Monica over the last four years with the express purpose of acquainting our parishioners with our rich heritage of Catholic Social Teaching.
JustFaith is used in over 1,000 parishes and churches involving 20,000 people, is a 30-week process where participants learn about the justice tradition of our faith, our faith’s call to justice and prepares them for the work of social ministry. Meeting weekly, small groups of 10–15 people employ books, videos, discussion, prayer, retreats and hands-on experiences. The intent is to provide a tapestry of learning opportunities that emphasize and enliven the healing work of God’s compassion found in scripture, church history and teaching, and faithful witnesses. The typical program at St. Monica runs from late August to late May.
Participants attend weekly sessions, two retreats, and four immersion experiences. In addition, participants have one to two hours of reading each week. The fee for the program is $175 to cover books and material.
