The Catholic Agency for Justice, Peace and Development

Preferential Option for the Poor and Vulnerable

This Catholic social teaching principle is about having a preferential option for the poor - he whakaaro nui mō te hunga rawakore - which compels us to think first of the needs of those who are most vulnerable.

Caritas has focused on the St Vincent de Paul Full Fill Van service in Rotorua for this video.

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.
