Catholic School’s Week

care-for-our-common-home-colour-imageOur theme for the 2016 – 2017 school year is “Care For Our Common Home” which speaks to the responsibility of our school community and all of God’s creations to protect and nurture the world we share.

In Pope Francis’s Encyclical, “LAUDATO SI’ : On Care For Our Common Home” there is a recognition of the human actions that have inflicted hurt on Mother Earth. For centuries we have acted as lord and masters of the earth and abused and plundered its ample resources. While there is urgency to this challenge we face to protect our common home, there is also hope as we have come to an almost unanimous and universal agreement that swift action is required by the entire human family to achieve the needed changes.

This year our theme should help us all to avoid the folly of indifference and promote human behaviours that will demonstrate our love for God, our brothers and sisters and a renewed focus on the common good and stewardship of the world in which we live.
