How do we help our students’ respond to God’s call to be stewards of creation while learning about complex Catholic social teachings? In this session, you will learn more about the importance of Laudato Si and how teaching students the Catholic Moral Decision Making Framework can guide them to action. See an example of how this was developed in a grade 4 classroom. Walk away with a planning template, ideas and resources to help you share this way of living with your students and staff.

Pope Francis’ first encyclical, Laudato Si, addresses all of humanity and calls us to address the deep rooted causes of the ecological crisis facing the Earth. Rooted in Scripture, he provides guidance on how to resolve these issues. As leaders in Catholic education, it is our responsibility to help our students learn about Church teachings and use these teachings to grow in their faith and be stewards of the Earth.

This session will be applicable to both classroom and school-wide social justice projects.
