Social and Economic Justice Committee
The Church’s Social and Economic Justice Committee (SEJC) is a parish group that meets monthly to discuss areas where there is injustice in the city, in the parishioners’ lives, and in the world. Their work on these issues reflects the lay ministry in the church and the larger world. Although they have a broad and inclusive focus, there is a special focus on the poor in the city, given the Church’s connection with the Soup Kitchen.
The committee has a dual focus on education and action. Collectively, they examine various issues and projects: to educate themselves, to alert and inform fellow parishioners, and to take actions towards effecting change. They are a presence at the Sunday Eucharist by integrating their concerns in the liturgy and by providing an information and education table at the coffee hour.
The committee meets once each month and welcomes anyone who wants to be involved. If you would like more information or are interested in joining the committee, please contact committee chair Lucy Sexton at Holy Apostles Mailbox or visit our table at coffee hour after church service on Sundays.
