Our Mission

When we see injustice, we must engage with our heads, hearts and hands. We are called to see, hear, understand, and respond to the message of the gospel and manifestations of injustice. This is an urgent call of living our faith today. Love of God and love of neighbor are one.

All Education for Justice resources are designed to promote greater knowledge of Catholic social teaching and highlight the connection between current world events, justice, and our faith. Living as a disciple in a globalized world requires both greater awareness of local and global justice issues and ongoing faith formation.

To build bridges across cultures, faith traditions, generations, and economic circumstances to promote a commitment to global solidarity
To apply the ethical framework of Catholic social tradition to base public policy on the dignity of the human person and the common good
To use the Pastoral Circle™ to invite participation in experience, analysis, reflection, and action on questions of social justice and care for our common home and one another in our world today
