Social Justice Statement

The Australian Catholic Bishops Conference release a
Social Justice Statement in September every year


Cry of the Earth, Cry of the Poor

The Bishops’ Social Justice Statement 2021-22: Cry of the Earth, Cry of the Poor, affirms that “we human beings need a change of heart, mind, and behaviour”. It draws from Scripture, from the theological tradition, from Catholic Social Teaching, and from the wisdom of the world, including the insights of the First Nations.

To download the Statement and for further resources and information regarding the Social Justice Statment, visit the Australian Catholic Social Justice council website.

Archived Social Justice Statements since 2007 are available for access and can also be downloaded from Australian Catholic Social Justice Council website here.
