This paper describes the congruency between Catholic social work education and Catholic social teaching. Schools of Social Work in Catholic institutions prepare students for social work practice in ways that are compatible with the call to justice, the goals of Christian service and the tasks of the Catholic Church’s social teaching. Articulating the connections between Catholic social teaching and social work education is an important starting point for understanding the importance of social work education to Catholic colleges and universities.
