The Center for FaithJustice consistently provides programs that challenge students to rethink what they know about social justice, their faith and how those two things are inseparable. Their programs, especially Justiceworx, have shaped so many students into active, faith-filled stewards of peace, love, and solidarity. Their staff is extremely professional and prepared. They are the quintessential Catholic Social teaching organization in the Mid-Atlantic region and I will always make sure that my students have an opportunity to experience their good work.
Thank you SO much, we appreciate this beautiful review!
Excellent organization with a powerful mission & equally powerful experiences of cultural immersion & faith in action!
thank you, we appreciate it!
The Center for Faith Justice serves a wide range of people! From the volunteers who serve with them, the people and organizations they bring volunteers to, and their summer LeaderWorX college interns they really strive to offer intentional opportunities to serve and be served! I was able to serve for one of their summer weeks a few years ago and was touched by the experience!
thanks so much!
CFJ's programs form disciples who are committed to working for justice for the rest of their lives. I'm an alum of JusticeworX and LeaderworX, and both helped me realize my own calling to serve God by serving those living in poverty. I would never have pursued a career in Catholic justice ministry without CFJ. Committed staff, dynamic programs, years of experience. If you're a faith formation leader looking for service immersion for teens, or someone interested in helping to lead these experiences for youth, look no further than CFJ.
thank you so much! so good to hear!
