Social (In)Justice with Pádraig Ó Tuama
In today’s world—with today’s concerns and injustices—what does it mean for a faith community to hold fast to a practice, belief, and value of social justice, one of Trinity Church Wall Street’s core values? During this retreat we will look at contemporary poems and stories, biblical texts, and examples of individuals who are trying—inspired by their faith, their pain, and their hope—to ensure systemic change and meaningful improvement in the lives of those affected by social injustice.
