St Joseph's Rotherhithe

Laudato Si' and Fratelli tutti

At St. Joseph's, we are deeply inspired by the profound messages encapsulated in Pope Francis' encyclicals, Laudato Si' and Fratelli Tutti. These powerful documents call upon us to reflect on our relationship with the environment, one another, and God, urging us to foster a more just, compassionate, and sustainable world.

In the spirit of Laudato Si', we recognise the urgent need to care for our common home. Through education, advocacy, and action, we instill in our pupils a deep reverence for creation and a sense of responsibility to be stewards of the environment. From integrating environmental studies into our curriculum to implementing sustainable practices within our school community, we strive to cultivate a culture of ecological awareness and action.

Similarly, Fratelli Tutti challenges us to embrace a culture of encounter, solidarity, and fraternity. At St. Joseph's, we embrace the richness of diversity and promote inclusivity, respect, and understanding among all members of our community. Through projects, interfaith dialogue, and social justice initiatives, we actively engage our pupils in building bridges of solidarity and compassion, echoing the Pope's call for a more fraternal society.

As a Catholic school community, we are committed to living out the teachings of Laudato Si' and Fratelli Tutti in our daily lives. Through prayer, reflection, and collaboration, we strive to embody the values of integral ecology, social justice, and solidarity, inspired by the vision of Pope Francis.
