The notion that the true mission of the Church is social work become prevalent among liberal Catholics in the 60s. Many of the religious and secular priests left the Church and married, thinking of social work as a more virtuous line of work than dispensing the Sacraments. Many who remained decided to reshape the Church to fit their new consciousness.
