JusticeWalkingJusticeWalking comes in two versions:

Youth/High School Version

JusticeWalking (J-Walking) for Youth is a three- to six-month “prophet-raising” process that forms small communities of adults and older teens who experiment with living the Gospel message. Key to this process are the relationships created within each J-Walking community and those they encounter at the margins of our society.

Through prayer, retreats, reading, dialogue, and relationships, J-Walkers broaden their circle of awareness and expose their lives to the compassionate spirit of Gospel justice.

J-Walking includes 12 sessions, contemplative dialogue on the signs of our times, opening and closing retreats, a weekend justice-immersion pilgrimage, monthly meetings located at a community service agency, maintaining a prayer journal, reading and reflecting on two books together, public presentations, and practicing lifestyle adjustments that apply Gospel teachings to life choices.

The biblical word for the good person is ‘just.’ In justice, we fulfill our duty to God and to all people. In justice, we find the sensibility to recognize all people as brothers and sisters and give them their due with readiness and open generosity.
