The Catholic Agency for Justice, Peace and Development

Social Justice Week

Social Justice Week 2021 runs from September 12-18 and will highlight the Beatitudes with the theme of encounter and community.

This year the education resources for Social Justice Week highlight the Beatitudes from Matthew 5:1-12. The title of the resources is ‘A Culture of Encounter: Be the Church’. Following on from last year’s resources that unpacked the Catholic social teaching (CST) principles, the 2021 resources encourage us to BE the Church through our daily lives and the way we encounter others.

 

All Catholic schools in New Zealand will receive a pack with relevant resources in the last week of term 2 to help with planning for September. Posters, cards and stickers are included in these school packs and more can be ordered at any time through education@caritas.org.nz.
