Catholic Social Teaching


What is Catholic Social Teaching?

Catholic social teaching (CST) is rooted in Scripture, formed by the wisdom of Church leaders, and influenced by the Catholic faith. It is the moral compass, guiding Catholics on how to live out their faith in the world. Jesus showed us how to be human and we look to His example of leadership as we strive to create His Kingdom on Earth.

Catholic Social Teaching at St. John's 

As well as ongoing charity work throughout the year, see our charity page for more information, we encounter social teaching across the curriculum. We are also working towards gaining the Live Simply Award. Taking part in school, local and global initiatives that teach us how to live simply, live in solidarity and sustainably.  Click here to see the welcome letter from Rt Rev Stephen Wright Bishop of Hexham and Newcastle and Chair of CAFOD’s Board of Trustees confirming that we are responding to Pope Francis’ call in Laudato Si’ and have committed to the LiveSimply journey, and are reaching out as stewards of creation to protect God’s beautiful planet, and our most vulnerable sisters and brothers.
