The Social Justice Sub-Committee is an offshoot to the St John the Baptist Ferntree Gully Parish Pastoral Council (P.P.C.).  It will report directly to the P.P.C. 

Aims and Objectives: 

  • To provide Advocacy on specific group issues (eg. Increase in Council rates and the impact this has on parishioners). 
  • To facilitate Educative/Conscience-raising on particular issues (eg. Refugees, Reconciliation, Human Rights, Globalisation, etc.). 
  • To provide Advice to the P.P.C. on practical aspects (eg. the contribution of Parish funding to both in Parish and out of Parish causes). 
  • To Link all activities to the broader Parish Pastoral Plan; to the broader Church Social Teaching; and to existing Parish groups already formed (eg. Breakfast Group, etc). 
  • To Establish very practical and tangible causes that can be readily identified with by all parishioners. 
  • To Forge Links, formal and informal, with other Parishes and/or Churches in the Ferntree Gully area and/or neighbouring areas in relation to potential joint activities relating to Social Justice issues. 
  • To Provide Information to Parishioners on specific Social Justice issues. 
  • To Assist Parishioners to voice their concerns on broader social issues.
