Welcome to JEDO – the Justice, Ecology & Development Office (JEDO)
within the Catholic Archdiocese of Perth, Western Australia.
With Catholic Social Teaching (CST) & Thought as our guide, we welcome your inclusion and participation in our call to prayerful discernment and social justice action. Although we begin with the four permanent or foundational principles of CST (Dignity, Common Good, Solidarity and Subsidiarity), we recognise that the wisdom sources (Scripture; Tradition; Reason and Experience) are strengthened when in dialogue with the ‘signs of the times’.
