Faithful Action

Faithful Action is a collective at Holy Communion dedicated to working for Justice and building power in our region. We stand together on important issues, and we seek to follow Jesus by walking with the most vulnerable in our society. In recent years we have worked for sensible gun reform, written our representatives about refugees and immigrants, and we’ve participated in our region’s discussions about race and policing. Join us as we work for change
