Justice Week

Being a community of faith not only involves ministry and service, but also the obligation to seek justice for those who may be considered the least, the lost and the last. Since 2001, Cretin-Derham Hall hosts an annual Justice Week that includes speakers, Empty Bowls, and a Youth Justice Summit.
