Catholic Social Teaching
Catholic social teaching is an essential component of our faith. Its premise is founded on our understanding of human life and dignity. Every human being is created in the image of God and is worthy of respect and dignity. At Holy Cross, community service opportunities are made available to our students throughout the school year. For instance, students can attend a workshop by Development and Peace where they learn the skills and knowledge needed to educate other students on how we can make a difference by coming together.
Community wide and international outreach programs such as our Christmas and Easter Basket Projects, Lent Campaign, Walk a Mile in her Shoes, Out of the Cold, and Pilgrimage are some of the ways our school takes part in Social Justice.
Catholic social teaching is an essential aspect of Catholic education. Social justice and community service opportunities are provided to students inside and outside of the classroom. Catholic education is different and unique. We welcome and accept students of all faith traditions. Education in a Catholic school enriches the faith life of all students. Excellence is built on the philosophical foundation that students need to be challenged in order to reach their full potential.
Holy Cross Catholic Secondary School puts our faith into action by being involved in Social Justice Education and action projects. Through these activities we begin walking the talk.
As part of a sub-group of the Chaplain’s Crew, students who are interested attend a workshop by Development and Peace where they learn the skills and knowledge to present an education piece to classes on a social justice issue challenging them to make a difference.
