Greetings Principals, Campus Ministers and Teachers
I hope things are going well at your schools.
As many of you know Catholic social teaching is a key essential element of our faith and is such a large
component of so many of our Catholic High School’s curriculums’.
With that in mind we would like to invite your school to join us for a special day we are offering on
Social Justice here at the Archdiocesan Youth Retreat Center in Kearny.
“Voices that Challenge” is being held on Thursday November 15th and goes from 8:30am till 1:30pm.
It is an encounter with “Social Justice” that will include a Keynote from Catholic Relief Services,
workshops and breakout sessions. Lunch is included in the cost of the day. Besides Archdiocesan staff
to help offer workshops we have gotten commitments from Catholic Relief Services, Bread for the
World, First Friends, the Center for Food Action and also Catholic Charities.
The cost for “Voices that Challenge” is only $10 per person – which includes keynote, workshops and
lunch. We have enclosed a copy of the registration material for the day with more information, or you
can visit our website at www.newarkoym.com for more information. The deadline to register is Friday
November 9th, 2012.
Having not offered a Social Justice Day for our schools for the last two years we are very excited to be
able to offer this program. It should be a very educational day for your students.
Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
