What is JustFaith?
JustFaith is a small-group ministry rooted in Catholic Social Teaching. Through engaging reading, prayer, thought-provoking dialogue, and direct outreach, participants will open their hearts to the world while deepening their faith and building lasting relationships.
To learn more, visit the JustFaith Catholic webpage. You can also attend a special one-time JustFaith workshop led by its founder, Jack Jezreel, on February 26, 2019. Find details about the workshop here.

- Registering 10-15 participants to launch a successful program

How do I apply for the grant that makes JustFaith free?
Thank you for your interest in the JustFaith program. This grant, available only to parishes in the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis, will reimburse you for costs associated with offering the program. These include a registration fee, speaker stipends, and participant materials such as books or DVDs. Any participation fee you charge will be yours to keep, as we know there are tangential costs such as refreshments, staff time, etc.
Eligible programs include JustFaith Catholic, as well as JustMatters segments (for parishes who have already offered JustFaith), for programs launching in Fall, 2019.
We are developing the application form. CCF Program Officer Meg Payne Nelson will send an email when the application is live. To get on the notification list, call Meg at 651-389-0882, or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
