Social Justice & Life

Our mission is rooted in the Gospels and the social teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. We are neither right nor left, Republican nor Democrat, but we formulate our agenda by the standard of human dignity that is reflected in our faith tradition.

We have organized resource information around the themes of Catholic Social Teaching. Each topic has up to date background information as well as links to additional information. We invite you to take action in helping us solve many of these problems.  Click for more information below. 

We also have individual programs in our Office of Public Policy and Social Concerns listed to the right.  Each program has it own coordinator.  Please follow the links to the right for more information.
