St. Matthew's ad hoc Environmental Justice Committee

The Environmental Justice Committee, inspired by the thought of Pope Francis in Laudato Si' is devoted to encouraging deeper awareness of our duties to care for God's creation. Our mission is to promote change with individual parishioners, our parish community as a whole, the District of Columbia, and our nation. If interested, please contact Norma at socialjustice@stmatthewscathedral.org.

Check out the Catholic Climate Coalition for links to learn more and pledge your support.

Just Faith

Just Faith is an extended educational and spiritual formation program. Just Faith provides an opportunity for parishioners to study and be formed by the justice tradition articulated within the Scriptures, the Church’s historical witness and Catholic social teaching. The next session is not yet scheduled.
