Social Justice

Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?’ —Martin Luther King, Jr.

Inspired by Catholic Social Teaching and dedicated to a “faith that does justice,”
Campus Ministry engages students in social justice related activities through immersion experiences, advocacy trips, speakers, workshops, and much more!

Principles of Catholic Social Teaching

  • Life and Dignity of the Human Person

    • Human life is sacred and that the dignity of the human person is the foundation of a moral vision for society.
  • Call to Family, Community and Participation

    • We believe people have a right and a duty to participate in society, seeking together the common good and well-being of all, especially the poor and vulnerable.hands
  • Rights and Responsibilities

    • Human dignity can be protected and a healthy community can be achieved only if human rights are protected and responsibilities are met.
  • Option for the Poor and Vulnerable

    • A basic moral test is how our most vulnerable members are faring. We must put the needy first.
  • Dignity and Rights of Workers

    • The economy must serve people, not the other way around. Work is more than a way to make a living; it is a form of continuing participation in God’s creation.
  • Solidarity

    • We are one human family whatever our national, racial, ethnic, economic, and ideological differences. We are our brothers and sisters keepers, wherever they may be.
  • Care for Creation

    • We show our respect for the Creator by our stewardship of creation. Care for the earth is a requirement of our faith and has moral and ethical dimensions that cannot be ignored.
