Adele Social Justice Project

Project Description

What is ASJP?

Inspired by Adele, we engage young adults toward deeper involvement in the Marianist Family and particularly in social justice efforts. Any “young adult” who lives in or is intrigued by the Marianist spirit is welcome to participate in ASJP events. We define young adult as anyone between 22-39 years of age. ASJP invites
graduating college seniors to join in ASJP events so they can become familiar with what the Marianist Family has to offer for young adults after college. Events can and do happen all around the United States.

ASJP Events

Adele Social Justice Project
International Encounter - Peru 2017
(Otuzco/Trujillo)

The ASJP International Encounter fosters the engagement of young adults with the Marianist charism as it is lived out by lay communities in various countries around the world. Young adults from different cultures come together to learn from each other and how to better live our charism in light of an active search for justice.

This Encounter will expand upon Chaminade’s mandate that “we are all missionaries.”

Participants are invited to enter into a more profound reflection of “see, judge, act” to better understand our relationships and our shared search for social justice. The encounter focuses on developing our roles as Marianists, laity, and those who are forming and transforming our church today.

The second of its kind, the International Encounter in Peru will take place from July 29 – August 6, 2017 (this includes travel days). Approximately 10-12 participants from the US will gather with 10-12 participants from various parts of Peru to spend a week together learning, sharing and growing in our understanding of mission and our Marianist charism.

A Walk with Adele

A Walk with Adele is a time when young adults can step away from their busy lives to rejuvenate in the spirit of Adele to continue to do the acts of social justice they do every day. This event is half a day with meals provided. Most of the day is done in a silent prayer time- a gift to you when most of your day is filled with noise. There will be discussion time at the beginning and end of the day for young adults to reflect together, share stories, and find ways to continue to serve others, rooted in social justice and inspired by one of the Marianist founders, Adele. ASJP hopes that this day can be a time away to realize that you need to fulfill yourself in order to serve others.

Annual Saturday Night Young Adult Discussion

Each year, the ASJP Core Team, supporters, and liaisons get together to discuss the next year’s path for ASJP. We have realized that that cannot be possible without asking young adults their opinion on what they need as young adults and how ASJP can serve them. We invite you to join us in a discussion about your needs as a young adult in the Catholic Church and how ASJP can help to fulfill that.
