What is Just Faith?
Just Faith is a personal transformation process in which participants can grow in their commitment to care for the poor and in their understanding of Catholic Social Teaching with the call to practice social justice beyond charity alone.
It is a 30-week education program that meets weekly in a 2 1/2 hour session and employs a variety of venues to achieve its goal of awakening our faithful to the call of social justice. It is usually conducted by a team of two facilitators.
The program is developed in an environment of a small faith community where the participants share a journey of compassion and spiritual growth that is both life-giving and challenging.

JL_001 JUST FAITH PROCESS
Just Faith invites people to experience a spiritual journey into compassion. Most of us long to be a generous and compassionate people. Just Faith, now offered in hundreds of churches and parishes across the country, provides a lively and challenging format to read, view, discuss, pray, experience and be formed in community by the power of the Holy Spirit. Our faith and Biblical tradition extend and extraordinary invitation to each of us and to our faith community to become agents of God’s compassion and healing in a wounded world. The Good news of Christ is both a comfort and a promise for the poor and, at the same time, a call to those of us who are not poor to be linked with God’s vision of healing and reconciliation.
