Be Advocates for Peace and Justice

Our Catholic Social tradition informs our conscience and guides are paths towards discipleship:

“The joys and hopes, the grief and anguish of the people of our time, especially of those who are poor or afflicted, are the joys and hopes, the grief and anguish of the followers of Christ as well. Nothing that is genuinely human fails to find an echo in their hearts. For theirs is a community of people united in Christ and guided by the Holy Spirit in their pilgrimage towards the Father's kingdom, bearers of a message of salvation for all of humanity. That is why they cherish a feeling of deep solidarity with the human race and its history.”
The opening paragraph of Vatican II’s Pastoral Constitution on the Church in the Modern World, Gaudium et Spes.
