The work of Catholic Charities, including that of the Office for Social Justice, is deeply rooted in Catholic Social Teaching. Our office offers a variety of workshops and materials about this body of work, and many of these are available here on our website. If you’re interested in a more in-depth educational opportunity for your parish or another group, please contact us.
Catholic Social Teaching is often referred to as the “best kept secret” of Catholicism, but, as the US Conference of Catholic Bishops acknowledge, Catholic social teaching is a central and essential element of our faith. Deeply rooted in the biblical tradition, “Catholic Social Teaching” refers to a body of official writings issued by popes, bishops, and other prominent faith leaders.
