Over the next 18 months, the Bellarmine Social Mission Core
Team (SMCT) is hoping to provide opportunities for the parish to share our
faith journey as it relates to the economy. We are called to communion with one
another in an economy that pushes us to succeed individually, which creates a
tension for each of us. Please keep us in prayer, and offer your input, as we
develop these opportunities for reflection and faith sharing. We hope for a
great process of input and dialogue with and among parishioners to reflect
deeply on important economic questions in light of our faith and the call to
compassionate living. As we gather parishioner insights, we hope to share
these reflections in forums such as bulletin letters, parish dialogues, and
immersion events. Please read the letter that was in the Sunday bulletin on March 24 here.
For more information on this initiative, contact Jeff Campbell, Bellarmine Social Mission staff, at firstname.lastname@example.org .
