School of Solidarity: Families and Catholic Social Teaching
Mary M. Doyle Roche
Explains how families can resist dehumanizing elements of our culture (competitive consumption, wastefulness, violence, etc.) and transform the many arenas of daily life (homes, workplaces, neighbourhoods, schools, and parishes) so that they honour the dignity of all people, especially the poor and vulnerable.
Doyle Roche offers questions and activities for discussion and reflection in conjunction with each of the major themes. The practical activities she suggests encourage families to explore social justice issues and ways they might transform unjust conditions in local and even global contexts.
