Your consistent prayers, advocacy, and campus engagement helped lead to a peaceful referendum in Sudan this past January.  It was against all odds, a true miracle.  Please continue to stay with the people of Sudan and help them build a better future.  Southern Sudan is set to become a new country on July 9th, 2011.  At that point, it will emerge as one of the poorest nations on earth.  To learn about how you can help visit: for resources and then use your own creativity and ideas to help promote peace.

Be sure to send your stories, actions and photos to and join us on Facebook!

Thanks for all you have done to promote peace in Sudan!!!

For Faculty

In an effort to support your incorporation of global issues into your syllabi, CRS offers a robust listing of articles, books and Catholic Social Thought related to issues of international poverty and development. These resources will work well both for classroom use, and potentially for your own research.

For Campus Ministers, Social Justice Staff, and Students

Together we are making a critical difference in the world. Because of our joint efforts, congressional legislation is reflecting global needs, individuals are receiving the care and support deserving of their human dignity, and campus communities are being transformed. Lets passionately continue our work!

I am attached to the university environment, which was my own world for many years, by love for the search for the truth, by compassion, by the frank and respectful dialogue between reciprocal positions. – Pope Benedict XVI
