Parish Social Ministry Resources

We have gathered these resources to assist in the planning and practices of your Social Justice Committee.

  • Charity vs. Justice This chart helps us illustrate the difference in focus to two forms of committee.
  • Parish Social Ministry Tool Kit In this tool kit you will find a collection of strategies and resources that have been developed by Parish Social Ministry leaders from across the country. This document contains great information but does have some links to CCUSA resources that are broken. We have notified CCUSA and will update the PDF file once the links are fixed.
  • Parish Social Ministry Together in the Work for Justice In 2003, Catholic Charities USA led a listening session to uncover some strategies for building and sustaining relationships with parishes by hearing the pastor’s perspective.  This manual is a sharing of these insights gained for anyone who wants to build and sustain fruitful relationships with parishes.
  • CRS Partner Parish Manual A guide for parishes in the United States that are involved in some type of sister parish or twinning relationship with a parish in another country.
