In keeping with the following statement from the United States Catholic Bishops:
Any politics of human dignity must seriously address issues of racism, poverty, hunger, employment, education, housing, and health care. Therefore, Catholics should eagerly involve themselves as advocates for the weak and marginalized in all these areas. United States Council of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), Living the Gospel of Life, 1998
the Life and Justice ministry has the following two-fold purpose: 1) to provide education regarding Catholic Social Justice Teaching to our parishioners and 2) to encourage advocacy regarding Catholic Life and Justice issues in the public square.
