The 84th Catholic Health Assembly: June 6-9, 1999

July-August 1999

Let Justice Flourish

The work of justice is often countercultural, requiring us to speak out against practices and policies that keep others from flourishing in community, Yet this work is indispensable in living out the Church's mission.

At the Catholic Health Assembly in June, more than 1,200 leaders of the Catholic health ministry came together to explore a variety of topics related to justice, especially what we as a ministry can do to ensure all Americans have accessible and affordable healthcare. In this special section, Health Progress shares the challenges and solutions presented by an esteemed roster of experts. In so doing, we hope to extend the assembly's goal: to strengthen your ability to ensure that our own ministry of healing, as well as the broader healthcare system in this nation, reflects a stronger commitment to justice.
