About the Center for FaithJustice: Based in Lawrenceville, NJ the Center for FaithJustice (CFJ) inspires the next generation of leaders by creating programs to serve those in need and educate for justice in the Catholic tradition. Named for the biblical passage that inspired them, Faith without works is dead (James 2:26), our WorX programs targeted at middle through college-age students unfold through mission retreats to impoverished areas. Over the years, our organization has hosted more than 4,000 young people whom have completed, collectively, more than 100,000 hours of community service. Our alumni have gone on to become impressive servant leaders in many diverse fields. The FaithJustice Fellowship Program was discontinued in 2012, but was re-started in fall 2016. We are eager to see this program grow, and excited for you to be a part of it!
