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 will 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 CST principles, the 2021 resources will encourage us on ways we can BE the Church through our daily lives and the way we encounter others.


Resources will be available online before the end of June and 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.
