Human Rights

We believe that every human person is created in the image of God. We recognise that every life is sacred and that every person has inherent dignity and worth. Our human rights and responsibilities are founded in our shared human dignity. It is impossible to live a life with dignity when there is poverty, hunger, inequality and injustice.

We have a responsibility for one another and are called to work for the common good of all. We recognise and promote the right of each person regardless of our national, religious, ethnic, political and ideological differences.

Our human rights are enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). The Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) is mandated by the UN to promote and protect the human rights (UDHR) of all peoples.
