Social Justice and Advocacy - resources

A collection of resources for learning about social justice issues

As a parish, we take very seriously Jesus' teachings about caring for the poor and those in need in our community and beyond. In 2018, the parish contributed $5,800 to support those in need plus additional in-kind donations.

The Diocese of Toronto provides a Poverty Reduction Page for research and to learn more about the realities of poverty. It is found in the Social Justice section of its website.

The links below connect with a selection of those resources. There is also a link to the diocesan Poverty Reduction Page. There you can find more information and other links to additional resources.
