Social & Racial Justice Statement
“We cannot tolerate or turn a blind eye to racism and exclusion in any form and yet claim to defend the sacredness of every human life,” Pope Francis
“The strategy of Jesus is not centered in taking the right stand on issues, but rather in standing in the right place—with the outcast and those relegated to the margins.”
- Father Greg Boyle, S.J. in Tattoos on the Heart: The Power of Boundless Compassion
St. Joseph Regional School, as a Roman Catholic institution, remains ever committed to the fair and equal treatment of all people in our society, regardless of race, religion, or orientation. As Catholics, we recognize the fundamental image and likeness of Jesus Christ in all of humanity, and seek to safeguard that Christ-like goodness in each human being. We stand with and for those most marginalized and oppressed in our community, just as Jesus did with the poor and underserved. We are reminded of the integrity with which Jesus treated those most marginalized members of society, whom others deemed disposable. As a Catholic community, we are called to do the same, and follow now in his footsteps.
