A group within the Church like Scarboro, with its particular charism of service to universal mission, is called to raise issues of injustice especially those in which we as Canadians participate, whether knowingly or unknowingly, and which seriously affect the lives of brothers and sisters who are far away. Statute 18.1, Scarboro Missions
Scarboro missioners are called...
- To manifest prophetic witness to justice-seeking activity
- To collaborate with other churches, faiths and with non-governmental organizations (NGOs) for structural change and solidarity action
- To remain grounded in an engaged spirituality informed by Gospel values and the Christian social teaching tradition on distributive justice, global peace, integrity of creation and an option for the poor.
The Justice & Peace Office expresses Scarboro Missions' commitment to a more just and peaceful world by proactively participating on its behalf in the struggle for global social change. This office shares information on, and encourages the participation of, Scarboro members and supporters, as well as the public, in this responsible quest for a better world.
