​​We invite people of all ages, young and old, to participate together in partnership with the community in social action processes and projects that improve the lives of people, and the planet both now and into the future. We draw upon Catholic Social Teaching to educate and ignite a passion to take action to work for the common good. We aim to increase understanding awareness of injustices, uphold the dignity of all people, help the poor and vulnerable, and facilitate and coordinate leadership opportunities that will help build a just society.
