The 9th Annual Bishop Peter Rosazza
Social Justice Conference

ROOTED IN FAITH - BRINGING SOCIAL JUSTICE HOME. "When disciples of Christ are transparent in heart and sensitive in life, they bring the Lord's light to the places where they live and work." Pope Francis Tweet, June, 2016”

Sponsored by the Office for Catholic Social Justice Ministry of the Archdiocese of Hartford

OUR KEYNOTE SPEAKERS: Joan Rosenhauer, Executive Director, Jesuit Refugee Services will present "Let Justice Flow at Home: Rooting Catholic Social Teaching in the Family". Family is a central social institution that must be supported and strengthened. Joan will share her expertise and experience on how Catholic Relief Services is supporting this tenant of Catholic Social Teaching throughout the world. We must help our families remember this rich body of Ctaholic Social Teaching which calls us to respond to the Gospel and go to the peripheries. Rev. Stephen Sledesky, Pastor of St. George Church, Guilford, will present "Home is Where the Heart Is" Jesus calls us to continual conversion to 'change our hearts' and inspire others to change as well. The workd needs that change but the workd is so bit! Fr. Sledesky will encourage us to start at home, grow our own hears, our families' hearts, our parishes' hearts and our towns' hearts...to reflect Jesus' call.
