Social Justice week is a week during the spring semester devoted to education, awareness and action around various social issues.
Social Justice Series, 2017
We welcomed two Daughters of Charity for a discussion on “Seeing God in the Poor”. The Daughters of Charity are a community of women who devote their lives to serving the poorest and most abandoned individuals in today’s society. They minister in the everyday worlds of the poor and the marginalized while living a life of humility and simplicity dedicated to charity. Today, there are about 16,000 Daughters of Charity living and working in more than 90 countries throughout the world.
