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.
My grandson began working with Justiceworx when he was in high school, and enjoyed the program so much that he continued during the summers while in college. His work with Justiceworx also inspired him to spend a year after college graduation working with the poor in Appalachia. It seems to be a tremendous faith-filled program which inspires the young people who participate.
Three of my teens have participated in summer experiences with Serviceworx and Justiceworx, for a total of twelve different experiences. This summer, my high school senior son will travel to Guatemala and my sophomore daughter to Philadelphia. I cannot begin to put into words how much these programs have influenced their lives. Each experience has opened their eyes, minds and hearts to the needs of others and challenged them to address the complexities of many social justice issues. I give thanks for the work that the Center for FaithJustice continues to do. Their programs truly touch lives and make a huge difference in our world... today, tomorrow and well into the future!
