Thanks for taking the time to visit PaxJoliet.org. As of July 1, 2012 the Peace and Social Justice Ministry has been renamed Justice and Peace and is now a part of the newly created Office for Human Dignity along with Respect Life and Missions. You may learn more about this on the frontpage of our news section.
Over the coming weeks you will see a major redesign of this website as we incorporate the various ministries of the newly created Office for Human Dignity. Respect Life Ministry and the Pontifical Mission Societies will be migrated here in due order. In the meatime, we will do our best through this website to continue to offer you the resources and information to help you in your social justice ministry.
Justice and Peace seeks to promote the gospel of peace and social justice through its programs and ministries, locally, nationally, and globally. With the information and resources provided on this website, we hope you will be challenged to discover creative ways to engage in the struggle for justice.
