In unison with the mission of the congregation of Holy Cross,
the mission of the Global Justice Team
is to be a voice for compassion -
seeking justice in the community around us,
in Canada and in the wider world.
- Lutheran Outreach Volunteers work under the auspices of the Global Justice Team, providing food support for individuals and families in the Newmarket area, at Christmas and throughout the year. The LOV food support ministry assisted many individuals and families during 2012, usually with food vouchers but also with Christmas baskets. Approximately $4000 of support was given.
- We support The Inn From the Cold's Community Meal program by preparing and hosting meals for those in need.
- We have also supplied the Crosslinks Street Outreach Van with clothing and food. The Crosslinks Street Outreach Van provides outreach to the homeless throughout York Region.
- We continue in close support of the York Region Kairos group.
- We work to educate ourselves and our community about the need to work for peace through justice.
