|Parish Social Ministry|
|The Goal of Parish Social Ministry|
|Principles of Catholic Social Teaching|
"We see the parish dimensions of social ministry not as an added burden, but as a part of what keeps a parish alive and makes it truly Catholic. Effective social ministry helps the parish not only do more, but BE more- more of a reflection of the gospel, more of a worshiping and evangelizing people, more of a faithful community. It is an essential part of the parish life.” Communities of Salt and Light, (Introduction).
