The Common Good

"God wants us to help people who are poor, who don’t have enough food, a safe place to live, or a community."


The common good means that the fruits of the earth belong to everyone. No one should be excluded from the gifts of creation. The principle of the Common Good is developed through our charity work as well as the support children are encouraged to provide their peers and younger members of our community.

However, this principle is also experienced through their studies.  Whether it is the Suffragettes, Rosa Parks, class differences on the Titanic or the apartheid through History or levels of extinction, water pollution, the distribution of wealth through Geography or Science the principle of working together to ensure all have what they need is central.
