As Christians, we are called to be good stewards of creation.
That means we are meant to look after the world that God created for us.
We must all work to leave our world in a better condition for the people who come after us.
Our first Catholic Social Teaching theme, was Care of Creation. We had a whole school assembly to introduce the theme to the children, and read Gospel passages where the creation of our Earth is mentioned and how we have been instructed to look after it.
This was then linked to Pope Francis' direction in Laudato Si and we discussed the guidance given so that we can become good stewards of the earth.
The children produced work in class that showed their focus and level of understanding towards this theme.
We finished the half term with our Harvest Celebration which included the pupils and families of the school bringing in food and toiletry donations for our local food bank.
We come together to thank you for our world. You created the Earth for us to live and prosper in. You taught us how to care for the world you created but we have not followed those laws..
Let us give thanks for the joy our world brings us and pray that we become good stewards of creation.
