Social Justice and Service
"We are particularly aware of the pressing need to work for justice through a preferential option for the poor and a simple life style which expresses our freedom and solidarity … by opening hearts to conversion and struggling to change oppressive structures."
- CLC General Principles 4 and 8
Service is an integral aspect of the CLC way of life. We understand service as ministry when it grows out of a sense of gratitude, desire to love and serve God, and deep listening. Moreover, reflection on our experiences of service helps us to discern our personal vocations and communal mission.
Efforts at direct service, outreach, solidarity and awareness of justice issues help us answer the call to continue Christ's mission in all social conditions.
CLC at SCU commits to do at least 8-10 hours of service per quarter. Members can do service through SCCAP or our CLC service placements.
