Social Justice Outreach

Chair: Peggy Gessler, 410-531-5039,

Vice-Chair: John Wilkin

Chair Emeritus: Gina Maclean

The Social Justice Committee (SJC) is driven by one common help the less fortunate in our midst. The committee was founded in 1990 by four parishioners wanting to assist the St. Ambrose Outreach Center in Baltimore City. The committee now has a variety of projects that enables parishioners to answer the call of Catholic Social Teaching through advocacy, education, donation, and participation.

On this page is a list of outreach ministries. Click on their link to find descriptions and coordinators' phone numbers and email addresses. Many of these ministries offer opportunities for community/parish service hours for students and confirmation candidates.

The Social Justice Committee meets at 7:30pm on the second Wednesday of each month (except July) via Zoom.

If you have questions, want to attend a meeting, or for more information, contact Committee Chair, Peggy Gessler.
