Social Justice Ministry

The Diocese of Mackenzie-Fort Smith participates in social justice initiatives through the work of a volunteer social justice coordinator. The work focuses on alternatives to unfair social, political and economic structures. Examples include anti-poverty initiatives, lobbying for early childhood services and development that favours our communities and the land. The work is guided by the social teachings of the Church. These include the call to community and the Common Good, the dignity of the Human Person, the principle of solidarity, the preferential option for the poor and care for God’s creation. The work is primarily carried out with a coalition called Alternatives North.

Interested in this type of work? Call and leave a message at the Diocese for Suzette Montreuil.
