Themes of Catholic Social Teaching

The Church's social teaching is a compilation of wisdom aimed at building a more just society and living lives of holiness amid the challenges of modern society. Modern Catholic social teaching has been articulated through tradition and a compilation of Church documents. The depth and richness of this tradition requires thoughtful study and is a critical core component of the East Catholic curriculum. The seven core areas of Catholic Social Teaching are:

  • Life and Dignity of the Human Person
  • Call to Family, Community, and Participation
  • Protection of Human Rights and Responsibilities
  • Preferential Option for the Poor and Vulnerable
  • Dignity of Work and Rights of Workers
  • Solidarity & Subsidiarity
  • Care for God's Creation

(summarized from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Washington, D.C., 2005)
