Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Primary School
How faithfully do we respond to the call to live as a Catholic community at the service of the Church's educational mission?
Catholic Social Teaching - CST
What is Catholic Social Teaching?
"Love your neighbour as yourself" (Mark 12:31)
CST is rooted in Scripture and shows us different ways that we can follow God’s plan for how we should live our lives in his Kingdom. It guides us on how to live out our faith – to love God and our neighbours - to bring kindness, justice, love and peace to everyone in our world.
At Our Lady of Lourdes, we follow the 6 main principles of Catholic Social Teachings, focusing on a different one each half term.
Care for creation
Community and participation
Option for the poor and vulnerable
Solidarity and peace
Dignity of work
