Mission Statement

We are a faith-based community that strives to live a faith that does justice. Guided by Ignatian spirituality and open to the richness of other religious traditions, we explore the values of our diverse cultural and spiritual heritages that transform us from an experience of God’s love, to compassion for those who are suffering, and finally to action on behalf of a justice that allows all God’s people to participate in a fair share of the goods of God’s creation.

Welcome to Jack Fitzgerald, a Jesuit Volunteer from Cleveland, Ohio, who will spend the year helping us out here at Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish.  One of his projects will be A Faith that Does Justice.  He will help to coordinate our projects.  Look what he has put together for us in September!

Dear friends, 

My name is Jack FitzGerald, the Jesuit Volunteer serving at Our Lady of Guadalupe.  I will be helping Fr. John with A Faith That Does Justice this year. Our first meeting of the year will be on Tuesday, September 12, 2017 from 6:30 P.M. until 8 P.M. in the parish hall at Our lady of Guadalupe.  Professor Karen Teel from the University of San Diego will be joining us to talk about racism in light of the recent events in Charlottesville, Virginia.  Dr. Teel is a professor of Theology and Religious Studies.  Her current research and teaching endeavors emphasize theological engagement with the problems of racism and white supremacy.  She has written a book Racism and the Image of God. Please join us as we discuss this issue and come together to work for justice. I am attaching a flyer to this email that you can share with others.  

 

The parking lot by the Baptist church will be available.  It is free to park there!

Thank you,

Jack
