Social Justice and Advocacy - resources

A collection of resources for learning about social justice issues

Jesus' teachings make it clear that we are called to care for the poor and for those in need. The resources here are to provide some references about needs and to foster thinking about how best to engage intentionally as a parish in responding to those identified needs.

The Diocese of Toronto provides a Housing and Homelessness Page and a Poverty Reduction Page for research and to acquire more background information. The links below connect with a selection of resources.
