Promoting a global culture of solidarity with the poor - in Haiti, Africa, and beyond. - for a more just and sustainable world   .  .  .  

Rich in Mercy Institute


Who is My Neighbor?


Who is My Neighbor? seminar is based on the third major part of the Catechism of the Catholic Church ("Life in Christ") that deals with moral theology.  Its emphasis is on the Catholic Social Teaching (CST) and the implications of CST for global solidarity and for building a "civilization of love" and active solidarity in opposition to the "culture of death" and radical individualism.

These are especially suitable for adult education classes or for parish social justice or social concerns committees that want to learn more about social justice and humane sustainability.

Just World Seminars


Just World seminars give an introduction to the principles underlying a just society  as outlined in the social teaching of the mainline Christian churches especially the Roman Catholic tradition. 


The program is based on the Compendium of Catholic Social Doctrine and Laudato Si,  Pope Francis' encyclical on Christian response to the cry of the poor  and the cry of the earth.  It is divided into 4 one hour sessions that can be done in one day or spread over a month or a week of evening or day-time sessions.
