Our Mission

Grounded in the Gospel call to bring forth the Kingdom of God on earth, the Mission of the Office of Parish Social Ministries is to assist parishes in serving the poor and vulnerable in their respective communities and to grow in love with God and neighbor through Catholic Social Teaching: charity, justice, solidarity and subsidiarity.

Our Vision

Guided by the principles of subsidiarity and solidarity based on Catholic Social Doctrine, the Vision of the Office of Parish Social Ministries is to provide a Catholic response to the poor and the marginalized on the most local level which is found in our neighborhood and community parishes. Through this network of parishes actively engaged in the social mission of the Church, the Diocese of Colorado Springs will promote the principles of Catholic Social Teaching to create more just social structures.
