The Justice and Peace Committee seeks to promote Christ’s call to build a just and peaceful world. They facilitate activities at the parish that allow us to learn about, advocate for, and respond to issues of peace and social justice in our parish community, nation and world, consistent with the calling of the Catholic faith.
Our parish Respect Life efforts take place within the context of Justice and Peace. The foundation of all Catholic social justice teaching is the dignity of the human person, and it is on this foundation that all Respect Life efforts are built. From conception to natural death, the Church upholds a consistent ethic of life. The Respect Life subcommittee helps St. Thomas Aquinas parish to celebrate October Respect Life Month, as well as raising life issues throughout the year.
