On the evening of November 29th, Peter Gyves, SJ, MD, founder and director of A Faith That Does Justice(AFTDJ), gathered with volunteers to celebrate their work over the past year.  2017 has been a year of growth for A Faith That Does Justice.   Fr. Gyves has brought his passion for social justice issues to Boston and surrounding communities.  People of different cultures and faith traditions have come together to support Fr. Gyves and the mission of A Faith That Does Justice.

AFTDJ’s volunteers have made phone calls, sent emails and had conversations about issues such as immigration and homelessness.  Our volunteers have attended workshops given by Fr. Gyves and assisted with making the first Community Meeting in Boston a huge success.  They registered guests at the meeting, welcomed them with an “ice breaker” exercise and participated in a wonderful period of fellowship and socializing before the start of the meeting.  One volunteer shared with Community Meeting guests her very personal story of her frightening and challenging immigration to the United States.  A Faith That Does Justice is grateful for the hard work and many talents and perspectives volunteers bring to our organization.  We look forward to the continued growth in the number of our volunteers.
