Justice

At. St. Mary’s House, we believe being a disciple of Jesus calls us away from church buildings into the world, seeking to enact the Kingdom of God in the here and now. That call is prophetic when it leads us to decry injustice. It's incarnational when it leads us to create new structures that uplift others. It's compassionate when it leads us to alleviating suffering.​

 

DIRECT ACTION:

Members of St. Mary’s House are involved in the following groups and organizations working for justice in our world:

 

Spartan Open Pantry

People of Faith Against the Death Penalty

Fight for 15

Bishops Against Gun Violence

Greater Greensboro CROP Hunger Walk

Greensboro Participatory Budgeting

Greensboro Urban Ministry

Multiple Sclerosis Bike Ride – Tour to Tanglewood

North Carolina Retired School Personnel

Piedmont Triad League of Women Voters

There may be others we have not yet discovered!

 

GIVING:

While we encourage all members of our community to be directly involved in acts of justice, kindness, & mercy, we also understand that a portion of the money we collect should go towards helping others. Accordingly, we set aside approximately 11% of our budget to be given directly to other non-profit groups. The ministries and programs are nominated by members of our community and voted on at our spring community lunch and meeting. In 2017, the recipient list includes the following:
