A PEOPLE OF MISSIONARY CREATIVITY
Pope Francis tells us that “the parish is . . . a sanctuary where the thirsty come to drink in the midst of their journey, and a centre of constant missionary outreach” (Evangelii Gaudium, 28).
St. Justin-St. Michael Parish has twenty different ministries serving the local neighborhood and the parish itself. While some of the active ministries need to reduce their activities during the coronavirus pandemic as a safety precaution, the faithful parishioners continue their missionary activity in different ways, reaching out in prayer and thoughtful communication to those in need.

“World War II ignited the spirit of St. Justin into an explosion of good works, extending from bond, food and scrap metal drives to providing hospitality for soldiers” (Joseph Duffy, Hartford’s Catholic Legacy, p. 189).
An evangelizing community is also supportive, standing by people at every step of the way, no matter how difficult or lengthy this may prove to be (Evangelii Gaudium, 24)
WHO NEEDS YOUR KINDNESS TODAY?
Whenever we encounter another person in love, we learn something new about God.” – Pope Francis
