Social Justice & advocacy

Our Catholic faith and our care for those on the outskirts of society go hand in hand.  It is important for all of us to be given food, drink, and shelter, but it is also paramount to ask questions about why people are hungry, thirsty, homeless, etc.  

St. Joe’s Prep strives to offer programming that allows all to think about these very important questions.  

“The mystery of the poor is this: That they are Jesus, and what you do for them you do for Him. It is the only way we have of knowing and believing in our love. The mystery of poverty is that by sharing in it, making ourselves poor in giving to others, we increase our knowledge of and belief in love.”
-- Dorothy Day
