Built on the principles of Catholic Social Teaching, the Office for Peace and Justice of the Archdiocese of Chicago prayerfully engages the Catholic community in justice as a unitive force in the Church and the world. Our vision invites all Catholics to build strong relationships and work collectively in our parishes, communities, and the world to advance Christ's love through social and systemic change.
The main programs of OPJ are the Catholic Campaign for Human Development, Catholic Relief Services, and Justice Education, which includes Organizing Catholics for Justice and JustFaith. Through these programs, the Office for Peace and Justice brings Catholic Social Teaching to life through local community organizations (CCHD), international development and global solidarity (CRS) and by engaging Catholics to live our faith in their public lives.
