The Tony McDonald Memorial "Just Faith" Capstone Presentation

“The Real Footprint of Social Justice in St. Louis City and County”

Featuring Dr. Bernard Sammons,
Founder and Chair of Social Justice 4 All

Tuesday, April 3 ~  from 6:30-8 pm
Ballroom of St. Francis Xavier College Church


This Capstone Presentation culminates the 2017-18 Just Faith program year at St. Francis Xavier College Church. The mission of this year’s Just Faith program is “taking actions to build community.” Dr. Sammons’ work to link our vast and diverse community in actions dedicated to social justice reflects that mission. Tony McDonald was himself a long time advocate and facilitator of Just Faith programs and missions in our parish. It is to his spirit and his memory we dedicate this evening.
