A gift to a troubled world.

Catholic social teaching is meant to be a gift to the world, and it is up to us to share it: in joy, humility and respect.

Through its social teachings the Catholic Church offers rich ground for discussion of the many challenges facing our world today: ground which affords ample space for the authentic growth of everyone, so that each of us can live the life that is intended for us. From the environment to the economy to the meaning of life itself, the Church's doctrine provides guidance for broad and respectful conversations leading to healthy, respectful, and truly inclusive resolutions of society's problems.

Students, voters, and others of goodwill will recognize in the principles, values, and virtues of Catholic social teaching the very principles, values, and virtues that make documents such as the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights and the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms possible.

We Catholics have a duty to understand and apply these principles, values, and virtues, and to teach them at every moment of every day by witnessing them in joyful and respectful humility before everyone God sends into our lives.

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.


People in a group learning environment.

Our programs inspire, form, and send out Catholics as engaged citizens and leaders in their communities, serving and loving their neighbours generously and effectively. Learn more about our work and how you can get involved.
