One of the most distinctive features of our Roman Catholic faith is our Church's rich tradition of social teaching. It is critical to the unique profile of Catholic education that this teaching be explicitly integrated not only into the curriculum but also into the overall life of our school communities.
Our students, staff, parents, trustees, and pastors have traditionally involved themselves in a wide range of social action activities. Whether it is a food or clothing drive, a class discussion about poverty in our world, or participation in a public demonstration, our Catholic school demonstrates consistent leadership in these areas.
Today, we need to both preserve and build on these practices in order to continue to participate meaningfully in the mission of the Church to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ to the world.
At St. Marguerite Bourgeoys Catholic School, our Social Justice Committee consists of staff and students. The goals of the Committee are to promote and support the integration of Catholic Social
Teaching into the curriculum and broader life of the school around a three-fold structure of service, education, and action. Our team showcases their commitment to social justice by participating in the Terry Fox Walk, Orange Shirt Day, Jingle Bell Walk, Food Drives, and so much more!
