Catholic Social Teaching
"The extent to which pupils contribute to and benefit from the Catholic life of the school is outstanding. They understand the Gospel values of love and service. Pupils of all ages readily accept responsibility for contributing to the community." Section 48
Catholic Social Teaching (CST) is rooted in Scripture, formed by the wisdom of Church leaders. It is our moral compass which helps guide us on how to live out our faith in the world. CST calls us as a school to work for the common good, help build a just society, uphold the dignity of human life and work for the justice and dignity of all of our brothers and sisters.
Catholic Social Teaching is exactly that… social.
Pope Benedict wrote:
“No man is an island, entire of itself. Our lives are involved with one another, through innumerable interactions they are linked together. The lives of others continually spill over into mine: in what I think, say, do and achieve, and therefore my life spills over into that of others.”
Catholic Social Teaching calls us as a school to work for the common good, help build a just society, uphold the dignity of human life and work for the justice and dignity of all of our brothers and sisters.
