Office of Justice & Peace
The Office of Justice and Peace strives to
center the Justice and Peace agenda in the Diocese of Lafayette, with a
special focus on incorporating Catholic social teaching as the basis of our faith, lived out in
daily life and in the work place.
Empowerment of the people is a vital part of all Justice and Peace Programs.
“Every person has a right to life and to the material and spiritual support required to live a truly human existence. The poverty and hunger that diminishes the lives of millions in our own land, and in so many other countries are fundamental threats to human life and dignity and demand a response from believers.”
