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 Toss for Justice.
2017 Theme: Human Trafficking in MN
January 3 - February 4, 2017
The exploitation of human beings, particularly young women, through sex trafficking is not an issue just in other countries. It has become a growing human rights issue right here in Minnesota! This year's Justice Week will focus on this local reality and ways we might address it in our lives.
