Catholic Social Teachings

“Catholic Social Teaching is a central and essential element of our faith.  It is based on and inseparable from our understanding of human life and human dignity.  Catholic Social Teaching is built on a commitment to the poor and vulnerable.  It calls us all to reach out and to build relationships of compassion and justice.  It calls us all to defend the dignity of life and build the common good.” – United States Conference of Catholic Bishops
