Life & Dignity at St. Joseph University Parish
Our belief in the sanctity of human life and the inherent dignity of the human person is the foundation of all the principles of our social teaching. Because of this, each person has the right to all that is needed to allow her or him to live their full potential as intended by God. The human person is the clearest reflection of God among us.
Each person possesses a basic dignity that comes from God, not from any human accomplishment or quality. We believe that every person is precious, that people are more important than things, and that the measure of every institution is whether it threatens or enhances the life and dignity of the human person.
