The work of Catholic Charities is deeply rooted in Catholic Social Teaching (CST). Often referred to as the best kept secret of Catholicism, CST refers to a body of official writings issued by popes, bishops, and other prominent faith leaders. The Office for Social Justice offers a variety of materials about this body of work; many of these are available on our website. (Visit CST Tools and Resources and Social Justice Resources for more information.) If you’re interested in an educational opportunity related to CST for your parish or another group, please contact us.
