OUR MISSION – PROMOTE HUMAN RIGHTS & ENVIRONMENTAL CARE IN THE DARLING DOWNS
SPIRITUALITY | SOCIAL JUSTICE | ADVOCACY
Our Commission was established in 2002 as a key direction in the Diocesan Pastoral Plan – “embracing action for Social Justice”. Five aspects to our work are: spirituality, education, leadership, solidarity and research. In partnership with those affected by injustice the Commission works to analyse issues and reflectively advocate for action. The Commission is grounded in Catholic Social Teaching. Our current priorities are: justice for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, caring for the environment and support and advocacy for refugees. We work to promote human rights and our actions are informed by the dignity of the human person.
