New Tri-Valley Social Justice Blog gives a voice to the voiceless

The Social Justice Committee of St. Charles Borromeo of Livermore, California, 
has started a new blog to promote ministries to the poor and provide interviews
with the poor and homeless as well as those who minister to them.

This is a great way to give a voice to the voiceless and invisible among us.

About the photo: This is Gary who works FULL TIME but cannot afford a place to live.  
He is a client of the Livermore Homeless Refuge.

Jim Schnitter just created this blog -- a good example of how a Catholic can jump
in, get started with Blogger (a free online blog tool with canned templates and 
gadgets) and start communicating to the world.  It's not pretty yet, but look
at the content!  Real stories of real people who are both helping and being 
helped.  Really gives a human face to the troubles of our community.

Thanks, Jim!

  1. An amazing story. Really feel enlightened with the way in which the lord works. This story should be mad into a Christian movie title.
