Justice Formation

Share and discern new perspectives

Justice Formation Program
Contemplative Justice Formation Program

We are revising the formation programs that transform people and expand their commitment to social ministry.
Our Christian faith invites us to become agents of God’s compassion in a wounded world. The Faith in Action Ministry of the Franciscan Renewal Center offers opportunities that help you act on that invitation. These programs offer Casa community members time to study, explore and experience Christ’s call to care for the poor and vulnerable in a lively, challenging, multifaceted adult learning process in the context of a small faith community.

More information on the new programs coming in early Fall 2017.

Participants in JustScripture study Scripture and Sunday lectionary readings in light of Catholic social teaching and topical issues.  Reflection leads participants to incorporate the Christian and Franciscan mandate to work for justice into their daily lives in a new way.

  • Sharing from a perspective of Franciscan values
  • Biblical issues of justice and mercy that impact our world today
  • An interactive process: a deeply personal and collective experience
  • No previous study of Scripture is needed
  • How to prepare for JustScripture here.

JustScripture meets on the 2nd Sunday of the month, from 9am-10:45am   Inquire with Kathleen Garast at justscripture(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign)thecasa.org
