Rooted in Love

We began the new school year with an assembly to introduce our new CST programme: Rooted in Love. The theme for this half-term is Care of Creation. Pupils were able to make links between Scripture (Genesis), Pope Francis' message (Laudato Si) and our mission to care for God's creation. They had many suggestions for how we can act on this and build on the fantastic work that took place in the Summer Term. 

Catholic Social Teaching (CST)

As Christians, we are called by God to work towards a common good. Caritas states that:

‘Every person should have access to the goods and resources of society so that they can live fulfilling lives. The common good is reached when we work together to improve the wellbeing of people in our society and wider world.’

The key themes of Catholic Social Teaching (CST) guide us on how to respond to God’s call. They are: care of creation, preferential option for the poor, solidarity and peace, community and participation, dignity of workers and human dignity. Every half-term, pupils explore a different theme using the Rooted in Love resources. They consider what each principle means, how it is based on Scripture, how we currently live it out in our school and how we could deepen our engagement with it.

At St. John Fisher School, our pupils are encouraged to take an active role in improving the well-being of others, be it in our local community, or on a national or global scale, through the regular fund-raising activities and community events. Find out more on our CST In Action page:
