Faith Doing Justice Summit

Today our prime educational objective must be to form men and women for others; men and women who will live not for themselves but for God and his Christ - for the God-man who lived and died for all the world; men and women who cannot even conceive of love of God which does not include love for the least of their neighbors; men and women completely convinced that love of God which does not issue in justice for others is a farce.

-Fr. Pedro Arrupe, SJ, twenty-eighth Superior General of the Society of Jesus

The Faith Doing Justice Summit, a collaborative effort of the Office of Mission and Identity, Campus Ministry, Christian Service and the Diversity, Global Education, and Social Justice Committees, aims to help form our community as people committed to a faith that does justice. The summit encourages our community to assess critically issues of justice through the lens of Catholic Social Teaching and Ignatian spirituality. Through unified efforts of all our Ignatian Ministries, the Summit will bring a specific justice issue to the consciousness of our community in order to foster dialogue and appropriate action.

2022-2023 Summit: Peacemaking in the Face of Violence

Sponsored by the Social Justice Committee
March 7, 2023

The program will explore Christian understandings of peace as more than just the absence of conflict. Representatives from two organizations will speak to our community about their work trying to break the cycle of violence:

  • 9/11 Families for Peaceful Tomorrows advocates for peace and healing in the wake of the loss of loved ones in the 9/11 attacks. Mrs. Colleen Kelly will join us.
  • Thrive for Life, a Jesuit-founded ministry, offers the resources of Ignatian spirituality and companionship to those who are incarcerated as well as holistic services and educational opportunities at Ignacio House in Manhattan to those who are seeking to rebuild their lives after prison. Father Zach Presutti, SJ and guests will join us.
