Caritas’ work for justice and peace is inspired and guided by Scripture and Catholic social teaching. We also seek to uphold and live by the principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi - the Treaty of Waitangi.
compassion and empathy – aroha
human dignity – te mana i te tangata
equality – ōritetanga
hope – tūmanako
justice – tika
Our work is formed by the principles of Catholic social teaching (CST). Read about CST here.
