Catholic Social Teaching

 

Life and Dignity of the Human Person

All humans are made in God’s image, so they are special and deserve respect.

 

Call to Family, Community and Participation

It is our job to support others and to help create a happy, loving community.

 

Rights and Responsibilities

We are responsible for the basic needs and rights of others as much as our own.

 

Option for the Poor and Vulnerable

We help the poor and vulnerable, who have the same needs and rights as we do.

 

The Dignity of Work and the Rights of Workers

All workers deserve safe working conditions, fair wages, and reasonable hours.

 

Solidarity

Even though we are all different, we try to be peaceful members of God’s family.

 

Care for God’s Creation

The environment and all living creatures deserve care because God made them
