Our Best Kept Secret

Does the Church have anything to say about Human Dignity, Poverty, Refugees, Work and the Environment?

The University Chaplaincy and the Jesuit Centre for Faith and Justice will be organising three sessions on the Catholic Social Teaching about topical issues including Human Dignity, Poverty, Refugees, Work and the Environment. The sessions borrow their title from the famous book ‘Catholic Social Teaching: Our Best Kept Secret’ edited by Peter J. Henriot, Edward P. Deberri, Michael J. Schultheis. The sessions aim to help young people, especially University students, to discover the rich treasure of the Church in its teachings about social justice issues. Such teaching is often unknown and undervalued.

These sessions are open to all University students and other young people especially those who participate in initiatives in Malta and overseas which bring them in close contact with social injustice. They will be held on the 28 th April, 5 th May and 12 th May from 6.30 to 8.30pm at Dar Manwel Magri sj (the Jesuit Residence opposite Mireva Bookshop) in Tal-Qroqq.
