JustFaith® is a small group process that invites participants to explore the Gospel call to compassion and justice. JustFaith is an intensive and successful model of justice education and spiritual formation that consists of weekly meetings and employs books, videos, speakers, discussion, prayer, retreats, and hands-on experiences. The intent is to provide a tapestry of learning opportunities that emphasize and enliven the remarkable justice tradition of the Catholic Church. Participants have the privilege of becoming a community with others and sharing a journey of faith and compassion that is both life-giving and challenging.

 

This fall, the St. Monica JustFaith Community offers the following opportunity to dig deep into our faith’s Justice tradition and heed the call of the Gospel to heal the world. As we continue to navigate the pandemic we will use different platforms to present the contents of the course. The 8-week sessions will be conducted on Zoom. Retreats and speaker events will be either hybrid or in-person. Immersion experiences will be in person.

Hunger: A Faith and Justice Response

This series is an 8-session, prayerful process that includes study, rich dialogue, and an immersion experience. 

This program inspires and equips participants to take concrete action to end hunger and food insecurity.

 

Hunger: A Faith and Justice Response seeks to create a movement of solidarity between Christians with sufficient access to food and those experiencing food insecurity, in the U.S. and worldwide. By fostering active listening, dialogue, and prayer, the program creates a group experience of trust and compassion. By fostering learning from articles, online viewing, and two resource books, lends new insights to participants’ awareness of the causes and consequences of food insecurity. Encouraging new spiritual practices and actions, it cultivates an expanding community of  Christians who are working to end hunger.

 

The course will challenge not only participants’ – but also your own – thinking about food insecurity, its causes, its impact, and viable steps to eliminate it. Groups explore themes including food deserts, food insecurity and nutrition, SNAP, the effect of the U.S. racial wealth gap on food insecurity, underemployment and food insecurity, food waste, public policy around farming, and COVID-19’s impact on hunger.
