Labor in the Pulpits

Labor Day weekend may mean the end of summer and one last outdoor BBQ, but it also has great significance for our faith and the Catholic/Christian belief in the sacredness of work. Interfaith Worker Justice, a labor rights organization based in Chicago, develops resources to help faith groups discuss the importance of just wages and worker rights. You can use their Labor in the Pulpits resources to start conversations with young adults and even in the wider parish about the importance of seeking justice for workers. Download the toolkit and you’ll find prayers, blessings, and litanies that you can use at young adult gatherings or even before your own Labor Day picnic to be more mindful of the sacredness of work.
