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.”
