Many Marianists are drawn to social justice. But what is a Marianist perspective on social justice? And what are some characteristics one can use to define it?
Things Marianist, "How Do Marianists Do Social Justice?—written by Jim Vogt, the director of the Marianist Social Justice Collaborative, examines this topic. Jim uses the work of the Adèle Social Justice Project in crafting the seven characteristics:
- Saying Yes
- Building Community
- Living Simply
- Joining Voices with the Voiceless
- Passion for the Mission
Things Marianist, "How Do Marianists Do Social Justice?" is ideal as a short introduction to Marianist social justice, as a discussion resource for Marianist communities or groups, and as a background piece for people new to the Marianist Family and its ministries.
