Human Concerns Committee Mission Statement
The Human Concerns Committee of St. Thomas Aquinas Parish on behalf of the parish community responds to Jesus' command to love neighbor and self by working for the common good of all. The committee works to inspire the parish community to discern and act in ways that make the works of peace, justice, and mercy integral to their daily lives. To become salt of the earth and light of the world, we work to alleviate the distresses of hunger, homelessness, disease, lack of housing and health care, and other human needs. We are sustained in this mission by seeing the face of God in others and pray for God's oversight and guidance as we proceed.
