Christian Service Commission Vision:

The Christian Service Commission exists as a model and resource of Catholic Social Teaching to enable the entire parish of St. Paul of Tarsus to put the social teaching of the Church into action. 

The Commission empowers the members of the parish to fulfill the Church's mission of love of neighbor, justice, freedom, and peace by responding, in an organized way, to societal and individual needs. 


We become the active hands and feet of Jesus by being Christ to others.
