Social Ministries

The mission of Social Ministries is to educate the people of the Diocese of San Jose on the principles of Catholic Social Teaching and its application to contemporary local, national, and international issues, to advocate for public policy which affirms human life and dignity and reflects a consistent life ethic, and to develop a constituency on social concerns.
