The Advocate's Toolbox will show you how to promote justice and the common good. It'll teach you how to leverage your influence as a constituent.
We believe that policies and decisions should be informed by the experiences of the people most impacted by those policies and decisions. We advocate for peace and justice, and are guided by the Gospels, Catholic Social Teaching, and the experience of Columban missionaries and the communities they serve.
The salvation that Jesus’ resurrection brings to all who are oppressed and impoverished, is also meant for the non-human members of our earth family.
Like the disciples on the first Holy Saturday, we must mourn for the victims of each crucifixion and so notice how each injustice is one instance in a cycle of violence.
God is present in all members of creation, no exception, and so every person (no matter their race, class, gender, nationality, disability, etc.) and every creature (no matter their species, intelligence, etc.) is welcome at the table of the Eucharist.
