    Catholic Social Teaching

    Catholic Social Teaching There will be eight sessions on the seven principles of Catholic Social Teaching to be held once a month beginning in September (except December) until May 2018. Catholic Social Teaching is what the Catholic Church teaches us about our responsibility to make the world a better place. It includes all of the writings of Bishops and Popes that help us understand how to apply the teaching of Jesus in contemporary situations. By knowing and understanding them, we can begin to see the world they way that God wants it to be. Once we see, then we can start to make changes!

    This fall, these sessions will be held Sept 24, Oct 22, and Nov 19 - all at 4 PM. The sessions will feature historical works of art and stories to illustrate the Principles of Social Justice; time for reflection; and shared discussions. Informational fliers are available on the table’s as you enter the Church.

    All are welcome. Please feel free to invite your friends and neighbors.
