The Social Action Commission CST-Start Workshop 2015

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.
