Justice

Making a difference in the city and the world

“Lay people have the principal responsibility to transform the social order in light of the Gospel.” – USCCB 2002

Hear the call for biblical justice

Biblical justice directs us toward the elimination of oppression, poverty, and everything that keeps men and women from their full development as human beings.

  • Education to housing
  • Health care to environmental justice
  • Racism to global relations

Get involved and make a difference 

Live out your call to justice through one of The Basilica’s many groups and forums:
