Peace and Justice

It is the responsibility of the Legislative Advocacy Commission to help keep the parish informed about Catholic teaching regarding specific issues that are facing our society – particularly peace and justice issues.

What does the Church teach about embryonic stem cell research? About the use of capital punishment in the United States? About the treatment of immigrants who may have entered the country illegally? What are the 10 Catholic principles calling for economic justice in the face of persistent poverty in the U.S. and around the world? What are the seven core principles of Catholic social teaching and how do they apply to current social issues? What is the Church’s position on war, on universal health care, on environmental issues in this country?

The St. Linus Legislative Advocacy Commission helps to inform members of our parish by researching Church teaching on these issues and then making that teaching available through information offered by sources that include the Michigan Catholic Conference or the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB).
