Program Overview

The second program of the JustFaith Catholic series explores local poverty and introduces participants to the tips and tools they need to respond.

Together, participants navigate questions such as: “why are the poor poor?”, “why don’t people in poverty just get a job?’”, “what are some common hurdles that people in poverty face?” and “what are some practical tools for alleviating poverty in my community?”. In addition to the readings, group members engage in prayer and reflection around Catholic social teaching throughout the week between sessions. Participants emerge from this program better equipped to help alleviate poverty in their communities, as well as stand in solidarity with those experiencing poverty.

JustFaith Catholic is also available in an ecumenical version.
