St. Agatha’s “Faith in Action” Team works on issues surfacing from members of the parish and community on which we can act collectively. Through our membership with the Community Renewal Society, we are working currently on the following issues:
1) Building a greater depth of power within St. Agatha to act on issues
2) Supporting the High HOPES Campaign to bring restorative justice/ conflict resolution strategies into our public schools to decrease the number of suspensions and expulsions and increase skilss for positive conflict resolution within the schools with students, teachers and other staff. (See editorial tab)
3) Supporting initiatives to increase affordable and livable housing in Illinois
4) Supporting initiatives to help ex-offenders expunge criminal records to better avail themselves of job opportunities.
Meetings are held Sundays at 9:15 am once a month.
