Catholic Moral and Social Teaching, drawn from human reason and illuminated by Scripture, is a central and essential element of our faith. It is based on and inseparable from our understanding of human life and human dignity, as well as a commitment to the poor and vulnerable. It calls us all to reach out and build relationships of compassion and justice, and to defend the dignity of life and promote the common good. These teachings offer a consistent moral framework to inform and mobilize the Catholic community on issues that impact our Church and society.
There are ten Catholic priorities in public policy that guide the work of the Colorado Catholic Conference in legislative advocacy, government relations, and education.
