Justice & Service

One Body In Christ

The Seven Principals of Catholic Social Teaching are the foundation and guide to living just lives.  They guide us in decisions as individuals, the Church and society.  Catholic Social Teaching is at the heart of the work we do at the Quad-Parishes in the area of justice and service.  

The Seven Principals of Catholic Social Teaching include

  • Life and Dignity of the Human Person
  • Solidarity
  • Care for God’s Creation
  • Call to Family, Community and Participation
  • Option for the Poor and Vulnerable
  • Rights and Responsibility
  • Dignity of Work and Rights of Workers

You are invited to learn more about Principals of Catholic Social Teaching by viewing the videos from Catholic Relief Services below.

The Hope Center is a collaboration of the West Side Catholic parishes of Annunciation, St. Agnes, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, St. Joseph, St. Jude, Nativity, and St. Patrick who work with other faith communities on the West Side of Green Bay to help break the cycle of poverty.

The Hope Center brings together, in one location a collaboration of services, including the Hope Center Pantry and Love Life Ministries which provides baby items to young families. The Hope Center empowers individuals by enabling them to stand on their own.  Learn More

The Quad-Parishes prepare and serve a meal at the NEW Community Shelter on the fourth Monday of every month.  This has been a great opportunity for us to connect with our community as we “Find Holiness in our Witness to the World!”

We invite you to join us as we prepare for the next shelter meal.
Love to Cook?  Help prepare the meal!
Love to Bake?  Homemade desserts are a favorite!
Love Connecting with Others?  Welcome guests and help serve a meal 4:30-6:00pm.

Monetary donations to provide for this ministry are also appreciated.  It’s a blessing to be able to share a warm meal together.

Members of the Society of St.Vincent de Paul (or “Vincentians” ) are men and women who strive to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service to individuals in need. We are young and old. Our members come in every shade of skin color. Some of us are wealthy, some are financially poor, but all of us are blessed with an awareness that our blessings (time, talent or treasure) are to be shared with our brothers and sisters in need.

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul at the Quad-Parishes work and pray with community members who are starting out on their own, have just been released from prison or are in need of extra assistance.  The St. Vincent de Paul Society is currently seeking additional members to help with serving our neighbors.

Members of the Mission Society work together to create craft items that are sold at various sales and events.  The proceeds from the sales are passed on to various local and world missions who help those most in need.  

A 24 hour vigil is held for 40 days, praying for the protection of all life from conception to natural death.  This quiet, non-confrontational prayer is an effective witness supporting the dignity of the human person.  Locally, 40 Days for Life walks are held in the fall and during Lent and members of the Quad-Parishes participate on Sunday afternoons.   Learn More
