Scarboro Missions Social Justice Page

Scarboro Missions follows and promotes Catholic Social Teaching — a body of teaching on economic, political, social and cultural issues developed by the Catholic Church. While the roots lie in early Christianity and Scripture, modern Catholic Social Teaching began with Pope Leo XIII’s social encyclical Rerum Novarum (The Condition of Labor) in 1891. It includes the social encyclicals of various popes, documents of the Second Vatican Council as well as statements of local and regional conferences of bishops. An introduction to Catholic Social Teaching is given here with various links for further exploration.
