Introduction to Catholic Social Teaching
7:00 – 8:30 PM, April 5, 2019
St. Augustine Church parish hall
16 Barre St., Montpelier
“Our Best Kept Secret” is the title of a book on Catholic Social Teaching. While little known even among Catholics, the Church’s teaching on labor rights, economic justice, war and peace, human solidarity, the right to participate, racial justice, the option for the poor, care of the earth and more – all based on the dignity of every person and the sanctity of life – is an essential aspect of the Catholic Faith. This interactive workshop will discuss the sources and principles of Catholic Social Teaching.
Joseph Gainza has been a justice and peace advocate for many years. He holds an MA in Systematic Theology and is a member of St. Augustine Parish in Montpelier where he is a lector and facilitator of the Evangelization Committee.
