Communities of Salt and Light

 

"The Church is the salt of the earth, she is the light of the world. She is called to make present in society the leaven of the Kingdom of God and she does this primarily with her witness, the witness of brotherly love, of solidarity and of sharing with others." 

– Pope Francis, Q & A Session with Members of Movements, Communities and Ecclesial Associations, May 18, 2013

Since 1993, the U.S. bishops' statement, Communities of Salt and Light: Reflections on the Social Mission of Parish, has served as a guiding document for parish social ministry in the United States. This website of the USCCB Department of Justice, Peace and Human Development uses this document as a lens through which to explore contemporary social ministry today and offers resources, best practices, and other materials to aid social ministry in a variety of settings.

To get started, visit the sections on the site menu to the right on Prayer and Worship, Preaching and Education, Living as Disciples, Charitable Works, Social Justice, and Being Neighbors.
