The vision and mission of the Catholic Church proclaims, teachers are witnesses to the belief that God has freely chosen to create every human being. Why? Because God is love. Human beings are created in love and for love. Furthermore each person is made in the image and likeness of the Creator and as such reveals something of who God is. When we see one another, we are called to recognise the dignity and beauty of the person. The basic human dignity comes not from our race, gender or social status, but from God.
Catholic Social Teaching calls us to recognise that all human beings are our brothers and sisters designed to be one race, one people, one family – the human race, the human family, called to be the People of God, the Body of Christ, to live in communion, one with the other and our God.
At St Luke’s, we teach CARITAS each half term following the ‘CARITAS in Action: Education and Formation in the Social Teaching of the Catholic Church.’ This also feeds into our collective worship and assemblies.
