The Catholic Agency for Justice, Peace and Development


The Catholic social teaching principle of Participation is recognising that everyone has a part to play in our communities. Promoting participation - nāu te rourou, nāku te rourou - means recognising we each have something unique and important to contribute to society. We are called on to be active members of our local and global communities.

Caritas has focused on the organisation L'Arche.

Resources related to this principle can be downloaded by following the link at the bottom of the page.

The resources include a poster, a 10-minute Reflection, Study and Discussion Guide.
