Secretariat for Social Concerns

Our Mission

"Our faith calls us to work for justice: to serve those in need; to pursue peace; to defend life, dignity, and rights of all our sisters and brothers. This is the call of Jesus, the challenge of the prophets, and the living tradition of the Church" (A Century of Social Teaching, NCCB, 1991)
