Collected Social Justice Statements a vital resource


Australian Catholic Social Justice Council News Story

The Australian Catholic Social Justice Council has released a new publication, Building Bridges: Social Justice Statements from Australia’s Catholic Bishops 1988 to 2013.

Building Bridges is a resource for anyone who wants to learn more about the Church’s social doctrine and will be especially valuable for parishes, schools, ministries and agencies.

The Statements are presented in an attractive and readable format and the book is fully indexed, making it an exceptional resource for students, social justice groups and individuals who wants to know about Catholic social teaching and this important aspect of the life of the Catholic Church in Australia.

Building Bridges shows how over the past decades Australia’s Bishops have addressed the themes of poverty and affluence, tolerance and racism, peace and violence, and care for our environment. In particular, they have constantly returned to the issues of justice for our Indigenous brothers and sisters, for refugees and asylum seekers, and for those who are marginalised and disadvantaged.
