Catholic Social Teaching

 

The CST Ministry Team meets monthly, usually on the 2nd Thursday at 7 PM.  The goals are:

Catholic Social Teaching 101-videos                                                       Option for the Poor and Vulnerable                                                                       Call to Family, Community and Participation                                               Life and Dignity of the Human Person                                                          Care for God’s Creation                                                                                                     Rights and Responsibilities

St. Pius X is a partner congregation with Bread for the World (BFW)  and CST team members bring BFW information and advocacy opportunities about the issue of hunger to the parish.

CST members also continue to serve in leadership roles, representing St. Pius X, in the work of community organizing for justice through Omaha Together One Community (OTOC) an ecumenical organization of congregations working together for the common good.  St. Pius X was one of the original founding congregations in 1995.
