St Patrick’s congregation is one of the founding members of Faith Linking in Action. It is a group of Bangor-area congregations, people of faith and community groups working together to “go upstream” to address the reasons people are falling into and getting stuck in poverty. Participants include most major faith traditions in our region.
Our faith calls us to be FLIA, listening and hearing the cries of our brothers and sisters as we seek:
–to build a community of justice and dignity in the greater Bangor area
–to find and empower leaders and change agents
–to demonstrate the love and mercy of God
–to encourage transforming change in our neighborhoods.
The current issues FLIA is addressing are: Transportation for All with better service through the Community Connector bus service; affordable and accessible Child Care for low-income families; and better access to Jobs for those underemployed or under qualified who have many barriers to overcome.
