We Are Salt and Light includes resources intended as a catalyst for both the New Evangelization and the continuing development of vibrant communities living the Gospel in the United States. Communities that strive to be salt and light share God's love with others, as we encounter Jesus Christ, through the Holy Spirit's transforming presence. Inspired by the Trinity's dynamic of community, we Pray Together, Reach Out Together, Learn Together and Act Together.

We Are Salt and Light is based on the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops' (USCCB) document Communities of Salt and Light. This project is under the joint direction of the Committee on International Justice and Peace and the Committee on Domestic Justice and Human Development, and has been developed by the staff of the Office of Education & Outreach of USCCB’s Department of Justice, Peace and Human Development.
