Catholic Social Teaching
Principles of Catholic Social Teaching
Catholic Social Teaching is based on the life and words of Jesus Christ, who came "to bring glad tidings to the poor...liberty to captives...recovery of sight to the poor" (Luke 4:18-19).
Catholic schools therefore become places where our young people are helped to put their faith into loving actions for others so that their faith can illuminate life and society (Pope Francis, Lumen Fidei 55).
The Oscar Romero Award will support our school in realising and living the unique calling of a Catholic school to become an evangelising centre by empowering young people and staff to become true agents of the change we want to see in the world by putting our faith into action; especially now as schools respond to the challenge of the Coronavirus pandemic (The Oscar Romero Award).
