Center for FaithJustice

Goal of Program

At the Center for FaithJustice our mission is to inspire the next generation of leaders by creating programs that educate for justice in the Catholic tradition. Our programs, LeaderworX and the FaithJustice Fellowship, are rooted in the passage, "Faith without works is dead" (James 2:26). They strive to bring together faith and works. LeaderworX is a summer of service offering an integrated experience of prayer, active service, communal living, social justice education, ministry training, and leadership development. The Fellowship is a year of service opportunity that offers fellows a full time work placement with a faith-based non-profit in Central New Jersey, along with spiritual direction and professional development all while living in intentional community. Both programs allow participants to thoughtfully discern their vocation.
