Action for Justice

St. Thomas More sponsors two ministries focused on the social justice “foot” of the Two Feet of Love in Action - the Justice in Action Committee and the Care for Creation Committee. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops says that social justice represents the “social, political, and economic aspects and, above all, the structural dimension of problems and their respective solutions. We step with this foot when we work to address the root causes of problems facing our communities by advocating for just public policies and helping to change the social structures that contribute to suffering and injustice at home and around the world.”

To find our more about a specific ministry, please email justice@morecommunity.org and someone will respond. 

Justice in Action Committee
justice-in-actionThe Justice in Action Committee’s mission is twofold:

Advocating through collective action to create structural change in accordance with God’s vision of justice for all creation, as revealed by the ministry and life of Jesus. Educating our fellow parishioners on the universal call to work for social justice and bring about structural change, and on the role of that call in our Catholic faith. Our primary - though not exclusive - method of working toward this mission is by partnering with ISAIAH, a faith-based coalition of more than 100 member congregations in Minnesota, of which St. Thomas More is a member. Working with ISAIAH is an essential way St. Thomas More can work to create structural change through collective action in accordance with God’s vision for the world.

Past activities of our ministry have included:
  • Advocating at the city and state level for more just policies for all Minnesotans, such as Earned Sick and Safe Time, a Homeowner’s Bill of Rights, and greater investment in public transit
  • Hosting educational sessions for St. Thomas More parishioners on topics such as domestic violence, the principles of Catholic Social Teaching, and Pope Francis’s call to personal encounter
  • Encouraging Minnesotans of faith to live out their civic privilege by voting in local and national elections

All parishioners are welcome to participate in our Justice in Action Committee! Meetings are held the third Tuesday of every month from 7-8:30 p.m. in the Oxford Room of the St. Thomas More School. For more information, contact Aaron Sinner, committee chair.

Care for Creation Committee

The Care for Creation Committee aims to:

  • Increase awareness of moral and faith issues related to environmental issues, as outlined in Laudato Si: On Care for Our Common Home, Pope Francis’s encyclical on environmental stewardship.
  • Encourage individuals and households to do what they can to promote sustainable living.
  • Work toward healing environmental injustices that often hurt poor and marginalized people the most.
  • Past activities of our ministry have included:
  • Conducting energy audits of St. Thomas More facilities, including both church and school buildings, with an eye toward improving energy efficiency as possible.
  • Holding a public prayer circle to celebrate the release of Laudato Si: On Care for Our Common Home.
  • Sponsoring a panel discussion with University of St. Thomas theology students on Laudato Si.

All parishioners are welcome to participate in our Care for Creation Committee! Meetings are held approximately every other month in church or school facilities. Watch the STM bulletin and website for announcements. For more information, contact Lorraine Delehanty, committee chair.
