Social Justice & Catholic Social Teaching


Social teaching is a central element of the Catholic Church. As a Catholic and Lasallian community we place emphasis on social justice education and action through our mission, curriculum and campus ministry programming.  

There are seven themes of Catholic social teaching:

  • Life and Dignity of the Human Person
  • Call to Family, Community and Participation
  • Rights and Responsibilities
  • Option for the Poor and Vulnerable
  • The Dignight of Work and Rights of Workers
  • Solidarity
  • Care for God's Creation

More can be found on the USCCB website.

Totino-Grace is committed to bringing social justice teaching topics and experiences to our students. Our faculty, staff, coaches and moderators help strengthen students' awareness of social justice systems and provide charity opportunities in a vareity of ways throughout the school year. Examples include: mission trip experiences, lasallian youth service projects, respect life group opportunities, mission collection and donation opportunities through campus ministry and co-curricular group initiatives, partnership with Common Hope and St. Josephs in Keren, Eritrea.

Our Religion Department offers a Social Justice elective course that includes examines how we are called to address systems and do charitable work.
