Catholic Social Teaching needs to come off the shelf! Watch this episode to see how it can be a lens for decision making in our organisations.
In this episode, Julie Morgan, former group manager, social justice policy and practice at St Vincent's Health Australia, suggests the need for two "lenses" of Catholic Social Teaching to be brought to bear on decision-making. One lens enables people to see the immediate situation of people experiencing disadvantage; the other lens allows reflection on the causes of their disadvantage that need to be addressed. The body of wisdom contained in Catholic Social Teaching offers a guide for ordering the structures that underpin Catholic Health and Aged Care and the discernment process for deciding on what services are offered, and how they are delivered.
