Mercy That Serves

Mercy That Serves

Our district theme for 2017-2018 is "Mercy That Serves."  ESPHS has a long history of social justice and charity initiatives.  Our staff is looking forward to the Blueprints Day on September 29th when they will get to explore the following questions:

1.  How are we called as Catholics, and Catholic educators, to work for social justice in our communities? 

2.  What is the different but complementary nature of charity and social justice?

3.  How can educators best become equipped to develop social justice projects for their schools and classes?

4.  What are the Corporal Works of Mercy and how can we put them into action in our classroom with our students?

Staff will then have the opporutnity to develop curriculum-connected social justice projects collaboratively with their colleagues to use in their classes.
