Faith Facts this Week
Catholic Social Teaching (CST) is based on
the belief that God has a plan for creation, a plan to build his kingdom of
peace, love and justice. It holds that God has a special place in this
story for each of us, whoever we are. Our part in this plan isn’t just
limited to things ‘spiritual’, or things we might do on Sundays, but that it
involves every aspect of our lives, from the things we pray about, to how we
live as a responsible global citizens.
During Terms 1 and 2
teachers in many of our schools, teachers have been learning about Catholic
Social Teaching. How

July 26 Sts Joachim and Anne – Jesus Grandparents
the first country in the world to celebrate Grandparents day. They celebrate on
the 9th of September. The UK celebrates grandparent in October here
in New Zealand we do not celebrate grandparent’s day. The Feast of Joachim and
Anne, Jesus’s grandparents, gives us a great opportunity to thank them for
giving us Mary and a great day to think of our own grandparents too.
nice to think of Jesus as have a grandma(sava)and grandad(sav).
