Catholic Social Teaching: Family and Community
Care for the Common Good/Family and Community
God made us to be part of communities, families and countries, so all people can share and help each other. We are called to work for the good of each and of all.
Saint: The Holy Family
In Autumn 2 2023, we will be thinking about how are all People of God, one family. Our school mission statement is 'One family in Christ'.
As humans we are not created to live alone, community is clearly linked in the history of humankind. One way for us to practise solidarity is to participate in pursuing the common good for a community. Every member of society has a duty to develop this common good and every member has a right to enjoy the benefits brought about by it.
We will recognise and celebrate All Saints and All Souls Days in November 2023 and pray for refugees and migrants around the world who are displaced from their families in our Liturgical Prayer sessions. We especially pray for families impacted by war and poverty around the world.
“Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.”
