Justice & Peace Ministries

Justice and Peace Ministries staffs the Bishops of the Archdiocese of Atlanta and supports archdiocesan clergy, parishes, schools, ministries and organizations on matters of justice and peace, as well as issues of social concern.  Grounded in Catholic social teaching, we focus specifically on education, awareness and advocacy resources, programs and opportunities.  We are committed to deepening the capacity of Social Action Ministries, thus helping to empower all Catholics to answer the call to love of God and neighbor by actively engaging in the social mission of the Church.

Racism still profoundly affects our culture, and it has no place in the Christian heart. This evil causes great harm to its victims, and it corrupts the souls of those who harbor racist or prejudicial thoughts … People are still being harmed, so action is still needed.”

– U.S. Bishops, Open Wide Our Hearts: A Pastoral Letter Against Racism
