Catholic Social Teaching Modules

The Social Action Office (SAO) has prepared three modules on aspects of Catholic Social Teaching:

  • Introduction to Catholic Social Teaching

  • Catholic Social Teaching and the Prison System

  • Catholic Social Teaching and the Environment.

These modules are designed to be presented to small groups and contain (i) background notes, (ii) overhead transparencies, (iii) hand-outs, and (iv) reflections. SAO staff may be available as presenters. However, the modules are designed to enable others to be presenters as well. We hope the modules are user-friendly and adaptable for use by various groups. We envisage that they could be adapted for parish groups, religious communities, in-service for teachers, secondary students. They can be presented in half-day or full-day sessions. To access the modules click on the links below or contact the SAO to borrow a hard copy of the modules.
