Catholic Social Teaching has been described as the Catholic Church’s best kept secret.

This session is an introduction to the riches of Catholic social thought so that it might be a little less hidden and a lot more lived out. Each of the key principles of Catholic Social Teaching will be explored: the dignity of the human person; the common good; solidarity; and subsidiarity. We will also explore two concepts which have entered Catholic Social Teaching through the influence of Liberation Theology: social sin and the preferential option for the poor. Finally we’ll explore what it might look like to put these principles into action.

This talk has been postponed from June to November.
