CST hosts civil and substantive Dialogues on Catholic Social Thought in public life involving respected policymakers, journalists, religious leaders, scholars, and other experts.
The Initiative on Catholic Social Thought and Public Life (CST) is an effort to share Catholic social teaching at Georgetown, in Washington, and beyond. The Initiative promotes dialogue on applications of Catholic Social Thought to key national and global issues and seeks to encourage a new generation of Catholic lay leaders to become “salt, light, and leaven” in public life.
This program offers gatherings and receptions for young (under 40) Catholics in Washington to explore links between their faith, Catholic Social Thought, and public policy.
These dialogues and receptions allow young Latino leaders in Washington to explore connections between their faith, Catholic Social Thought, and their professional lives.
The Initiative is a unique effort to promote dialogue on Catholic Social Thought and national and global issues; build bridges across political, religious, and ideological lines; and encourage a new generation of Catholic lay leaders to see their faith as assets in pursuing the common good.
