Join us this summer as we take a look at themes from Catholic Social Teaching (CST). The Church’s social teaching is a rich treasure of wisdom about building a just society and living lives of holiness amidst the challenges of modern society. Each session will look at one principal through prayer, an activity, a Saint, and a Bible story. Helping one to understand how we can look at modern social issues through the light of our faith.
Each session will be available on Monday. While the activities are geared towards our younger, grade school, parishioners, everyone is invited to take part in the conversation. Grow in your understanding of CST by taking the principal, the Saint, or Bible story and reflecting on it in light of modern social issues.
