Social Matters

Social pastoral care of the Church is probably what identifies the Church most for the majority of European citizens. The social dimension of the work of the Church inspired by her social doctrine is in fact part of her mission to proclaim the Gospel throughout the world. It’s a question of evangelisation.

Since 2010 a specific Commission has been set up to deal with social issues, also integrating questions regarding safeguarding creation, migrations, charity, justice and peace.

➢ Caritas in Veritate Commission

CCEE works closely with other Catholic and European networks in the field of Social issues - such as ComECE, Caritas Europa, Justice and Peace Europe...
