Commission on Restorative Justice
This Commission was established in response to Pastoral Statements on Criminal Justice.

In 2000 the U.S. Catholic Bishops issued a Pastoral Letter calling for new efforts to implement models of restorative justice that address crime in terms of the harm done to victims and communities, not simply violation of law.

In that same year, the New York Catholic Bishops also called for a restorative approach to those who have been harmed as well as to those who have done injury to others.
