Explore the Spirituality of Catholic Social Teaching

The spirituality of Catholic Social Teaching reminds us that we meet God in the people, places, things, and events of this world. That is why spirituality is not just an individual or personal thing.  Our spirituality touches relationships between groups in society and guides our response to social and ecological issues.  This website focuses especially on the understanding and expression of Catholic Social Teaching in Asia Pacific today.
