What is the Catholic Labor Network?

The Catholic Labor Network is a place for Catholics — lay, religious and clergy — who find inspiration in Catholic Social Teaching on labor and work, and wish to share it with the world. We come together to exchange information about the Church and social justice and to support working people in their struggles. We promote the cause of workers and Catholic social teaching in our labor unions, parishes and other organizations.

The Catholic Labor Network is the U.S. affiliate of the World Movement of Christian Workers, an association of the faithful registered with the Pontifical Council for the Laity in the Vatican.

The Catholic Labor Network is a 501c3 organization incorporated in the District of Columbia.
