The Justice and Peace Committee of St. Norbert Abbey welcomes the involvement of Norbertine lay associates, fathers, brothers, priests, and friends of the Order interested in social justice and Christian outreach. The Committee exists to provide educational programming, legislative advocacy, advice to Abbey leadership, and a Norbertine presence to local social justice and outreach efforts. It collaborates with the Conference of Major Superiors of Men Office of Justice and Peace, St. Norbert College Peace and Justice Center, Social Concerns Office of the Diocese of Green Bay, Wisconsin Catholic Conference, United States Conference of Catholic Bishops Office of Justice, Peace and Human Development and the Interfaith Center for Corporate Responsibility.
St. Norbert Abbey shares with local charitable organizations.
St. Norbert Abbey names a local charity to receive its Sunday collection each month. The Norbertines match the donation from the worship assembly. For December 2013, we recognize the Society of St. Vincent De Paul.
This program, along with the Salvation Army, provides assistance to individuals in need in the Green Bay area. This collection will be used for heat assistance for those in need.
