Commission on Restorative Justice

In 2000 Bishop Howard J. Hubbard established the Commission On Restorative Justice to:

  • raise awareness of criminal justice issues that affect individuals and communities throughout the diocese;

  • raise awareness of Church teaching on these issues;

  • advocate for a criminal justice public policy at the federal and state levels;

  • implement the recommendations contained in state and national Pastoral Statements of the U.S. Bishops on criminal justice.
