The Gospel calls us to follow Jesus Christ’s example of faith, hope and love. Through Jesus, God reaches out to the broken, the poor, the sick and the imprisoned. We seek a restorative justice model to empower the Church to heal our communities damaged by crime and violence. This includes the reconciliation and healing of victims of crime and their families, prisoners and their families, and all those who serve in the criminal justice system.
The CCC Restorative Justice Committee, through its advocacy in legislation, education and pastoral care, is dedicated to the transformation of our criminal justice system.
