Our Issues

Historically, our work for justice was focused on the three major principles of the Earth Charter: Social and Economic Justice; Ecological Integrity; and Democracy, Nonviolence and Peace.

Current Focus

Annually, the Congregation Justice Committee selects key areas on which to focus throughout the year. The committee's current justice priority is the animation of Pope Francis' encyclical Laudato si': On care for our common home, which connects with a core theme of Living Well, Living Well Together.

Past Priorities

Prior focus issues have included extensive work on climate change, ecological economics, and human trafficking.
