Mission: Grounded in the call to compassion, we, the Justice and Peace Committee of St. John Chrysostom parish, strive to challenge and enliven the parish community through prayer, education, service and action on behalf of the Gospel values of justice and peace.View our ministry's objectives here.
The Justice and Peace Committee, with friends, installed the "Memorial to the Lost" at SJC for the first time in 2015. The display, created by Heeding God's Call, has been hosted by local houses of worship from many faiths.
Our current programming includes a focus on fair trade, environmental protection, gun violence, and partnership with Chester churches and organizations.
Meetings are held from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on the third Thursday of each month in the library of Mother of Providence Regional Catholic School on the St. John Chrysostom campus.
The Justice & Peace Committee concluded its display of the Memorial to the Lost with a prayer service on April 16. The display was created by Heeding God's Call, a faith-based organization working to end gun violence, and travels among houses of worship in our community. St. John Chrysostom is a Congregational Partner of Heeding God's Call.
Installed April 2-16 at St. John Chrysostom, the display honors more than 150 Delaware County residents who have lost their lives to gun violence in the past five years.
We ask your continued prayers for all lives torn by gun violence. Read more about the event here.
