Having a virtous character according to this philosophical tradition must be possessed by public servants to build a state of just and developed society. Hence, this paper is a cursory guide to look into the basic role of the Chatholic Church and  Muhammadiyah in influencing the organizational culture of the communities they are serving. the common teachings of Islam and Catholicism, in the context of public ethics service is one that is upholding the moral virtues of good governance, which is deontological in nature and consequential in effect.
