Social Justice Commission
Through Social Justice, our parish supports our values of mission and vision by responding to the call of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to promote the integration of Catholic Social Teaching into our faith and life as a parish. The four key strategies we work with are:
- Communicate and increase awareness of the Key Principles of Catholic Social Teaching throughout the parish.
- Help shape just social structures that embrace human dignity in pursuit of the Common Good
- Lead efforts to address the needs of the poor and vulnerable in our community and society
- Support efforts to live our faith through caring for God’s creation
St. Thomas Aquinas is committed to works of charity and justice as we seek to bring about the Reign of God in our time.

Inspired by the vision of the Gospel and Catholic Social Teaching, the members of the Social Justice Commission at St. Thomas Aquinas Church seek to foster ways to promote the dignity of all persons and all creation and bring about justice and peace. Challenged by the example of Christ, the commission strives to follow and to teach, by example, this foundational dimension of our faith and advocate on behalf of the poor and powerless. The commission is committed to works of charity and justice as we seek to bring about the Reign of God in our time.
The Social Justice commission meets monthly on the third Tuesday from 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm in the Activities Building.
