In more recent times, Good Samaritans have involved themselves in ministering to indigenous communities, women and children trapped by domestic violence, the homeless, refugees, asylum seekers and prisoners. Issues of political, cultural, ecological and social injustice are addressed through the Good Samaritan commitment to social commentary, advocacy and solidarity.
Communities of welcome provide rest, renewal and spiritual direction for a broad range of people. Participation in ecumenical, inter-faith, and cross-cultural dialogue initiates provide pathways to understanding and peace. An undertaking to work in partnership with others in embracing God’s mission fosters a culture of community and mutuality.
