Every person deserves to be treated with dignity and given the opportunity to transform hurt and suffering into healing, redemption, and wholeness. In restorative justice, crime and harm are understood in terms of the people and relationships impacted, rather than solely the law or rule that was broken.

Restorative practices bring together people and communities affected by harm to understand what happened and mutually determine how to make things as right as possible.

As Catholics, restorative processes invite us to live out the principles of Catholic social teaching and to model Jesus' reconciling way.
