Starting in November, over the next 7 months we will feature a different Catholic Social Teaching with articles, video, or activities for the family.
DECEMBER - Call to Family, Community, and Participation
A person is not only sacred but also social. How we organize our society – in economics, and politics, in law and policy – directly affects human dignity and the capacity of individuals to grow in community. Marriage and the family are the central social institutions that must be supported and strengthened, not undermined. We believe people have a right and a duty to participate in society, seeking together the common good and well-being of all, especially the poor and vulnerable.
The social justice committee cordially invites all parishioners (parents, kids and anyone who is interested) to participate in the Random Acts of Kindness Advent Calendar (download below). Paper copies can be made available upon request.
The Random Acts of Kindness Advent calendar is a great way for families and individuals to become more involved in our community by performing random acts of kindness for neighbours, friends, loved ones. What a great way to make new friends and acquaintances!
TAKE ACTION Please read this article and discuss how you as an individual or as part of a family can go out into the community and participate in some activity that makes our/your community a great place to live, work and worship.
God bless and have a wonderful Advent season.
