Catholic Social Teaching Principles

Catholic Social Teaching principles: 


Human Dignity  We are all made in God’s image and; therefore, are called to defend the dignity and worth of every human being, 

Common Good and Call to Community  The well-being of each person is connected to the good of others. As human beings we only truly flourish in the context of community. How we organize our society – in economics and politics, in law and policy – directly affects the capacity of individuals to grow in community,

Option for the Poor and Vulnerable  In a society marred by deepening divisions and inequality, our tradition instructs us to put the needs of the vulnerable first, and 

Solidarity  We live and work in solidarity with our sisters and brothers who face the sin of racism each day.
