Contemplation & Action for a Faith that Does Justice
Pacific Catholic Social Teaching
The Catholic Bishops of the Pacific region share with the Pope the responsibility to teach about social justice issues. They teach about social justice issues in their own countries and in the region, and they teach about international social justice issues from the perspective of their local contexts. Because they focus on their own context, these teachings can often be more specific and concrete than the international teachings.
Here you will find teachings by individual Bishops from the region, from local Bishops Conferences including the Central Pacific Catholic Bishops Conference, and from the Federation of Catholic Bishops Conferences of Oceania. Sub-categories help you to find material from particular countries.
