The goal of social ministry is to help the people of our region utilize their knowledge and skill to reach the needs of their neighbors, respond to adversity in effective ways, and work in improving structures for keeping people out of impoverished situations. The Office for Pro-Life Ministry and Advocacy encourages one another to work together to build a just and peaceful society by addressing both immediate community concerns, and long-range social improvements.
Community leaders are encouraged to take advantage of the following programs:
Leadership training for the development of planning, organizational, and communication skills.
- Legislative education and advocacy training to develop networks of informed leaders who work together to promote just legislation.
Initial ministry formation for those who are beginning a ministry to the bereaved, the elderly, the homebound, persons with disabilities, refugees, or other persons in need.
- Ongoing formation to those already involved in ministry with the provision of regional or diocesan workshops, information presentations, or evenings of reflection.
