Social Justice Week

September 8, 2019 – September 14, 2019 all-day

“Do unto others what you would have them do to you.”
Matthew 7:12
Each year the Catholic Bishops of New Zealand set aside a week in September for Social Justice Week, inviting us to reflect and take action on a current social justice issue.
In the 1920s, Cardinal Joseph Cardijn founded the Young Christian Workers who worked on a range of social justice causes. He developed the See-Judge-Act method as a way to reorient one’s life toward social justice and solidarity. (See the Newsletter for more)
This method, grounded in Catholic social teaching, is a way of looking at a situation, analysing it, and taking appropriate action.
