Catholic Social Teaching

God has a plan for creation


Catholic Social Teaching 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 plan for every single one of us, whoever we are. Our part in this plan isn’t just limited to things ‘spiritual’, or times when we do “religious things.” It involves every aspect of our lives, from the things we pray about, to how we live as a responsible global citizen.

Our part in this story is a vocation for the common good, a call to treat everyone as our brothers and sisters.  It is something that we all share.

The Catholic Church has set out the principles of social teaching that we share with our children through all that we do, both implicitly and explicitly through the curriculum, special events and activities and through our ordinary actions in school.

Catholic Social teaching in action



‘The Community Larder’ Foodbank Representatives of our RE council delivered food donations to 'The Community Larder.' They were very gratefully received! We send a huge thanks to all the parents/carers who generously contributed to this cause over the last couple of weeks. We are so proud of our pupils who understand the importance of giving back and making a difference to the lives of others; truly living out the Gospel Values and embodying our school's commitment to Catholic Social Teaching.

Examples of CST across the school

20 pupils represented Holy Family at the 'Picnic and Praise' event at Aylesford Priory on Wednesday this week. This was a wonderful event in the sunshine with children from Catholic Schools in Kent attending to join in the readings and singing.

Congratulations to all pupils who attended - we are advised you were a credit to the school'. Thank you !
