In a society marked by the deepening divide between rich and poor, the gospel calls us to radical and self-giving love. Catholic Social Teaching Principles teach us how to respond to social justice issues facing our world: by meeting the needs of the poor and vulnerable and opposing the structures that perpetuate poverty and abuse the vulnerable. Our vision is to create a society that acknowledges the humanity of all people to live in the fullness of dignity.
