I am a retired educator and a CCD teacher at Nativity of Our Lord Church in Monroe Twp., NJ. As an 8th instructor, our students need reminders about serving those less fortunate and three years ago, while looking for some different "mission" programs to share with them, I came across The Center for FaithJustice. I was immediately smitten! So much so, that I approached my parish priest and asked him if he would approve and endorse the programs in our church and i would supervise them. He immediately complied as he was familiar with the organization through another parish. Two summers ago, we had our first SERVICEWORX program with 24 middles schoolers participating and we sent five high schoolers on two different JUSTICEWORX programs to Trenton and Appalachia. This past summer, we hosted a second SERVICEWORX mission week at our parish and we sent four high schoolers off for a week in Trenton. Our experience with The Center for FaithJustice has been wonderful. They are always available, always present, supportive and helpful. They are kind and fair and work with all aspects of the programs. They are always available for parent meetings, phone calls, emails, etc. Their programs are educational, yet provide the necessary channels for all students involved to walk away with important and valuable tools to strengthen their faith. Although this is the most expensive program around, it is by far the best. You get what you pay for!!! Please feel free to contact me.
thank you, Joan! We very much appreciate it.
As director of Campus Ministry for a Catholic school in central New Jersey, I had the opportunity and privilege to have students participate in JusticeworX. I can honestly say that this program changed the lives of hundreds of our students many so whom continue to be involved in Justice ministries today. The Center for Faith Justice has afforded me the opportunity to participate in invaluable spiritual experiences which in turn were beneficial to my ministry. The Center for Faith Justice continues to provide challenging Gospel based programs which encourages students of all ages to reflect on how we live our lives. Because of the challenging experiences our students were privileged to encounter at JusticeworX, our school became much more aware of the the teachings of the Churh. The Center is a rich resource for all of us trying to proclaim the church's social Gospel.
thanks so much!
