The Human Concerns Committee discerns the needs of persons in the parish and wider community, especially the poor, and identifies resources to meet those needs enlisting the active cooperation of parish members. This mandated tradition acknowledging that every Christian is called to service and to work for justice includes Respect Life efforts. In addition to educating parishioners of social justice issues, the committee’s scope of responsibility is two-fold:
- To meet immediate needs of the poor by way of direct service;
- To work for changes in the structures of society that are oppressive.
