Catholic social teaching is called the Church’s “best-kept secret.”

We believe that the secret needs to be shared—and that it will transform you into the participant and the servant-leader your community and country need.

Catholic social teaching is a model for: healthier politics and democracy; a culture and economy where every person’s God-given dignity and the common good flourishes; and a manifesto for the humble and magnanimous leaders voters deserve.

Our mission is to share Catholic social teaching and form Catholic leaders rooted in its truth and beauty, so Catholic social teaching can become a transformative force in democratic society and politics.

Our vision is that every Catholic becomes an active civic participant in their communities, formed in the image of Christ, serving and loving their neighbours in the model of the Most Gentle Shepherd, and that democractic politics, economy and culture are transformed by the life-affirming wisdom of Catholic social teaching—building the Kingdom of God here among us.

Who We Are

Catholic Conscience is dedicated to the promotion of non-partisan Catholic civic and political leadership and engagement.  Our mission is civic evangelization through Catholic social teaching: forming citizens in the full breadth of our faith's social vision, and thereby forming our Catholic community into a diverse, influential, and gently persuasive family of voices within democratic civil society and politics.
