Human Concerns

Welcome to Human Concerns!

Human Concerns promotes an awareness of the social teachings of the Gospel. The committee enables parishioners to respond to the Gospel challenges of justice, peace and compassion. This may take place through special events, consciousness-raising activities, or by providing information to advocate on contemporary issues when there is a need for a prophetic and active Christian response from the parish. As a committee member, you will be involved with determining what social justice issues and outreach efforts will be pursued and supported at SEAS. Human Concerns is one of 8 Standing Committees which meet once each month and send a voting representative to the Pastoral Council.
