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 Canadians 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 Canadian society and politics—our great gift to Canada as Catholic leaders.

Our vision is that every Catholic becomes a leader in their communities, formed in the image of Christ, serving and loving their neighbours in the model of the Most Gentle Shepherd,

And for a Canada whose politics, economy and culture have been transformed by the life-affirming wisdom of Catholic social teaching—building the Kingdom of God here among us.
