Life, Justice & Peace Commission
What We Do:
Provide oversight of parish ministries in the following areas:
Life: Project Rachel Retreats; Prepares; Natural Family Planning; Pro-Life Prayer Vigil; and Welcome Baby.
Justice and Peace: Just Faith and Pax Christi
Outreach: Hope House; Interfaith Coalition; Community Meal; Parish Financial Aid; Missions; and Family Promise.
The mission of the Life, Justice and Peace Commission includes distribution of the parish tithe, the money allocated each year by Assumption Parish to be given to charitable works and missionary activities. LJP also oversees the various parish ministries that work in the areas of pro-life, social justice, peace, the missions, and charitable activities.
Called by the Gospel of Life and Love, we promote the dignity of every human life and we carry out the corporal works of mercy in the local community and the wider world.
