Justice Outreach Project is a week’s worth service, learning, and solidarity. Centered on the principles of Catholic Social Teaching, JOP is about engaging in meaningful, Christ-centered relationships with the Blackfeet.
Focused on the needs & capabilities of young people by placing them outside their comfort zone, this extraordinarily fun and unique adventure crosses the borders of race and culture.
Each day is unique, but they all include a mix of prayer & worship, work, play, and cultural immersion. We usually start with Mass, then serve the community through a work project, take a break in the afternoon, and then have a cultural experience in the evening. Activities for the day are centered around one of the themes of Catholic Social Teaching:
- Life & Dignity of the Human Person
- Call to Family & Community Participation
- Rights & Responsibilities
- Option for the Poor & Vulnerable
- Dignity of Work & Rights of Workers
- Care for God’s Creation
Not a mission trip to save anyone or a service trip to fix anything, JOP is about building the Kingdom of God through the hard work of forming mutually respectful relationships.
