The Caritas Ambassadors showing true servant leadership this afternoon, giving up their lunchtime to volunteer at the Halesowen Welcome Group ๐Ÿงก

We were delighted to welcome members of the Halesowen Welcome Group to our very first Soup Kitchen!
 

We were honoured to serve the local community with hot soups, cakes & a hot cuppa this afternoon in school, led by our very own Caritas Ambassadors! ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’• 

 

We thank all the parents for their generous donations of clothes, shoes & toys for the children. It was a huge success & we received many compliments from our visitors; thanking the children and staff for all their efforts in helping them to feel wanted & loved. 
 

Thank you to the parents who supported us for the afternoon, serving hot drinks and making our new friends feel really welcome! ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•

Y5 have been researching which scientists have worked for the common good!

We began our Advent journey today, by thinking about the Dignity of the Human Person as part of our Catholic Social Teaching. We are learning all about those who require our love & kindness; refuges and migrants, as they arrive in our country. We are making our pledge on Friday to ‘Welcome the Stranger.’ ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ™ It is more important than ever to think about others during this time, after all, Mary and Joseph were welcomed as they arrived in Bethlehem- let’s us do the same for others. ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’•

Stewardship of Godโ€™s Creation

 Catholic social teaching (CST) is rooted in Scripture, formed by the wisdom of Church leaders, and influenced by grassroots movements. It is our moral compass, guiding us on how to live out our faith in the world. It offers a set of principles to help us think about how we should interact with others. It forms the foundation of the choices we make, and how we view creation.

‘Dear young people… The Lord wants to turn your hands, my hands, our hands, into signs of reconciliation, of communion, of creation. He wants your hands to continue building the world of today.’ Pope Francis

Read more about some of the CST principles which inspire our work:

Dignity

Solidarity

The common good

The option for the poor

Peace

Care for creation

The dignity of work and participation

 

Our faith calls us to love God and to love our neighbours in every situation, especially our sisters and brothers living in poverty. Following in the footsteps of Christ, we hope to make present in our unjust and broken world, the justice, love and peace of God.
