The Social Action Commission CST-Start Workshop 2015
By: Mayen Acebron, RSW
This year is the “Year of the Poor” thus the Social Action Commission (SAC) Diocesan Team has designed the Catholic Social Teaching (CST)- Starter Workshop for parish leaders such as the parish EXECOM and Ministry Coordinators. The main objective of the workshop is to provide parish leaders with basic knowledge on Catholic Social Teachings as guiding principles for the activation and strengthening of SAC programs in their respective parishes. This is a great opportunity for parish leaders to understand the situation of the poor and eventually work hand in hand with their SSDM coordinator in empowering the poor families in their respective parishes.
This workshop will be conducted per vicariate for two consecutive Saturdays. There were two vicariates that have already completed the workshop.
The Good Shepherd Vicariate was the first vicariate to experience the workshop last February 21, 2015 at Caritas Novaliches office. It was attended by fifty four (54) parish leaders from seven (7) parishes. The second part of the workshop for the same vicariate was conducted on February 28, 2015 and it was attended by forty three (43) parish leaders.
The Vicariate of San Bartolome was the second one to attend the CST-Starter Workshop last March 21, 2015 at Caritas Novaliches office. It was attended by twenty-three (23) participants from five parishes. On their second day March 28, 2015 twenty (20) leaders attended from four (4) parishes. The Christ the King of the Universe parish did not have representatives that day.
