Justice & Peace

The mission of the South Oakland Vicariate Justice and Peace Committee is to promote the common good through educational opportunities and outreach programs based on Catholic Social Teaching.  On Oct. 22 we will be sponsoring our third interfaith forum between Jews, Muslims and Catholics.  WE have done educational sessions on immigration, human trafficking, hunger and other social issues.  The group meets at different parishes each month, usually the first Monday of the month, so contact Kathy Peterson at 248-689-3294 for current information.

Prayer Shawl Ministry

The group members knit or crochet shawls, hats, or scarves, and donate them to those in need of a visible sign of God’s love. We enjoy conversation and needlework in the process. Please direct any questions to Pat Pillot 248-689-8189, Pat or Lorraine Pfahler 248-619-9849   Whether you craft a little or a lot, we hope you will join us!
