The Catholic Church has life giving social teachings that guides our path in the world. We affirm the sacredness of all human life, and seek to promote a respect for the dignity of all human life at all stages of life. Pope Francis has been calling us to be attentive to the needs of the poor, who are often in our midst. This committee reflects on how we as a parish can live out the social teachings of the Church at the parish level, and in our local community.
