Service, Scripture, and Social Justice

  • Add music, Jesse Manibusan’s “Open My Eyes, Lord,”  “They’ll know We Are Christians By Our Love,” “Lead Me Lord,” “Blest Are They, or “We Are The Light of the World.”
  • Invite participants to do some research on the causes of hunger and poverty in the United States and in your area and come back together to discuss what else your group might want to do — put together a hunger handout to go in the parish bulletin, raise money for the soup kitchen, and/or write letters to legislators or to the editor to address the issues.


  • Promote in the parish bulletin, through e-mail, or social networks two months ahead.
  • Confirm individual participation the week of to be sure you have enough volunteers.
