The Catholic Church has had much to say about work and the rights and duties of workers. Catholic Social Teaching on work begins with the dignity of the human person and an understanding that work is for the common good. However, while the Church organisations in Australia have been engaged in many different work activities for a long time, up until now little was known about the size and composition of their workforce. The project was commissioned by the Australian Catholic Commission for Employment Relations (ACCER) and carried out in 2015 and 2016 by the Pastoral Research Office (PRO) of the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference (ACBC) with a view to addressing that knowledge gap.
