Asia Pacific Teachings on Social Justice
The Bishops of the Asia Pacific region share responsibility for teaching about social justice issues with the Pope. They make a unique contribution to Catholic Social Teaching but their teachings are not generally as well known as those of the Pope or the Bishops of major English speaking countries. Here you can find Asia Pacific teachings by individual Bishops, Bishops Conferences from the Asia Pacific region, and from the Federation of Asian Bishops Conferences (FABC).
Search by Region
