Human Rights / Human Development
Rooted in Catholic Social Teaching, we will offer programs that welcome a diverse community of people who are affected by or who are passionate about justice and human dignity. We will, following the lead of Pope Francis, our Bishops and the Missionary Servant Rule of Life, address issues such as immigration, workers rights, food security, just wage, criminal justice, human trafficking, etc. We will facilitate efforts to advocate for change as well as offer concrete local, immediate solutions using the resources of the Shrine community. Our preferred method to achieve this goal will be the implementation of the “best practices” in areas of systemic change. Additionally, we will form collaborative ties with other Missionary Servant missions in the United States, Mexico and Latin America.
